I was reminiscing about my childhood and I remembered making peppermint creams with my mum. They are sooo easy to make and such fun! I tried to do this with my 18 month old but he was more interested in eating it than he was in cutting out shapes!
The recipe uses raw egg whites but if you want you can replace this with condensed milk. I used pasteurized egg whites.
1 egg white (3 tbsp egg)
Few drops peppermint essence
9 oz icing sugar
few drops food colouring
1) Whisk egg whites till they are frothy.
2) Add the icing suggar and mix till mixture is stiff.
3) Add peppermint essence.
4) Add food colour and mix.
5) Roll out and cut into shapes. Place on waxed paper and let dry. To make rolling easier I added more icing sugar to the mixture as well as sprinkling on the work surface.
