    Peppermint Creams

    Peppermint Creams 15th Aug 04 at 3:25 AM
    Back on my quest to ruin the teeth of the nation (by the way we might need to find a moneysaving tip for dentistry if this carries on) .

    heres an easy recipe for peppermint creams

    1 Egg White
    450g (1lb) Icing Sugar
    Peppermint Essence or Oil of Peppermint

    Beat the egg white until frothy but not stiff.
    Sieve the icing, adding enough to produce a fairly stiff mixture.
    Add a few drops of the essence or oil.
    Knead the mixture in to a firm paste and roll on surface dusted with sieved icing sugar.
    Cut into rounds or form small balls and flatten.
    Place the peppermint creams onto parchment or silicon paper, place in a warm place to dry for 24 hours.
    Store in an airtight container

    As with all things with raw eggs in dont let pregnant women, young children etc have them.

    I used to make these as a kid and had forgotten how to make them. I will buy the ingredients tommorow and make them with my daughter.

    Anymore easy recipes would be most appreciated mtgnnr.

    .............but it does make them look pretty, especially if you put a couple of drops of green food colouring into half the mixture - so you end up with some white, some green. Dip them into chocolate (milk or bournville) then all you need is a nice cellophane bag and a bit of green ribbon and you've got something lovely for the school/church fete.

    Coo Yummy!

    For really sickeningly sweet ones (Govt. Health warning required) add some of those mini marshmallows (a couple of handfuls).

    Can we spell H-E-A-R-T B-Y-P-A-S-S?
