Peppermint Cream Recipe

So simple to make you'll never need to buy peppermint creams again.

Just whisk two free range egg whites until they're frothy then add enough of the whites to 500g of sifted icing sugar to make a pliable dough,  adding peppermint essence to taste.

Remove from the bowl and roll out on a clean surface dusted with icing sugar to desired thickness. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Our girls often choose the hearts but at Christmas all the festive shapes come into play.

Set aside on a tray to harden for 24hrs (that's the difficult part!)

These make lovely presents at Christmas and our younger girls like to hand them out in little boxes to friends and teachers. I'd advise dusting them first with a little sugar to prevent them sticking.

Happy sweet making!


  1. These are so cute! I remember years ago I made some cream cheese mints with a few girlfriends and they were fun to make and really tasty. Thank you for reminding me! I'll be preparing this recipe soon :).

  2. Thanks Alexis! Some recipes dip them in melted chocoalte too for extra sensory pleasure :) Enjoy

  3. Oh Gosh, I remember making these many moons ago when I was in National School.Ours were pale green so we must have added colouring to get that authentic mint look!! Thanks for the memory Dee and keep churning out those wonderful recipes.

  4. These look so yummy Dee, I'm a big fan of minty goodies and even a box of dinner mints wouldn't last long in my press :)

  5. They are scrummy but shocking how much sugar's in them! The same could be said for home made cordials too though and perhaps it's not such a bad thing that we're more aware of it.

  6. Love your new look site and the recipe, great for Christmas! Well done.

  7. This is awesome!!!! I never knew making peppermint patties would be so easy...now can I dip them in dark chocolate too? Lovely. Imen x
