With an abundance of pretty box’s and jars around I decided to join the homemade brigade and make some peppermint creams.

Ingredients
425g/15oz sieved icing sugar (plus some for rolling out)
White of one small egg
One teaspoon of crème de menthe or peppermint essence
½ lemon, juice only
175g/6oz plain chocolate
Some greaseproof paper

Method
Whisk egg white until you have soft peaks then slowly add the crème de menthe into a stiff paste
Dust your board with icing sugar
Roll out the mixture very thinly
Melt the chocolate in a bowl over hot water
Brush a sheet of greaseproof paper with oil
Cut your mint mixture into 2in rounds
Dip half the rounds in the chocolate mixture then place on the greaseproof paper to set
