About the bake

These tasty bitesize sweets are great for all of the mint-lovers out there and can be served as an after dinner treat, given as a gift or even just to nibble on snuggled up in front of the telly. It is so quick and simple to make, why not get the kids involved with helping you. Add a drop of green food colouring if you want them to turn out green! If you want to make them without an egg, use condensed milk instead. Peppermint Creams are sometimes brought out as a Christmas treat but we like to make them all year round.

15Prep Time


  1. Step 1:

    Place the egg white and a few drops of peppermint extract in a medium bowl and beat well using a wooden spoon.

  2. Step 2:

    Add the icing sugar and stir well until the mixture begins to come together. Use your hand to bring the mixture together to form a soft dough.

  3. Step 3:

    Roll teaspoonfuls into balls and place on greaseproof paper. Flatten down with the back of a spoon. You can then decorate with a fork or the end of a straw. Leave to harden.

  4. Step 4:

    To decorate, melt the chocolate and dip the peppermint creams to half coat them. Leave them aside to dry and sprinkle on chopped peppermint candy canes.
