Peppermint Creams

Although the dough can be a bit off a faff to make these taste lovely after a dinner and are prepared with minimal ingredients. Think of them like homemade After Eights.


  • 1 egg white
  • 350g icing sugar
  • 3 drops peppermint essence (may need more just taste as you go)
  • 1 bar of Bournville chocolate


  1. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate and leave to cool a little.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk the egg white until frothy. Sieve in the icing sugar and mix well. Add the peppermint essence and mix well until you form a dough. You will need to use your hands for this. Once the dough comes together knead a little.
  4. Break off small pieces of the dough and roll into small balls.
  5. Flatten into discs and dip half into the melted chocolate.
  6. Place on the baking tray to set (until chocolate had hardened).

Notes: Next time I would make these even thinner than shown in the photo.
