Peppermint creams remind me of when I was little as they were the easy sweet to make. I was reminiscing about them with friends the other day and this inspired me to make some, and then I thought about what a lovely treat they would be wrapped up as a little token gift to Mummy’s and Grandmother’s on Mother’s Day which is only a couple of weeks away now.
I love having Mother’s Day – to me it is like an extra birthday in the year! A day where Mummy gets her own way and that can;t be half bad at all!
So here is the recipe for my little yummy treat, which really did taste as yummy as I can remember!
- 30ml of double cream
- 300g of icing sugar
- 1 egg white
- peppermint essence
- white chocolate
Basically you throw it all in to a bowl and whisk it together until you have a dough. If it looks too runny then just add more icing sugar, but you need to be able to roll it out!
Once it is in a dough, icing sugar up your work surface and roll it out flat but not too thin. Choose a cutter shape that you like (you really need a small one and I ended up washing up one from the playdoh box!) and then cut out you shapes and put them on a baking tray.
Keep rolling and cutting the leftover dough until you have none left.
Leave to dry out for a bit.
Melt some white chocolate.
Spread a bit in the middle of each peppermint cream and then sprinkle with cake topping.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy, as we used to say as kids!
Having multiple toddlers is tough! I know I have to keep up with them everyday so I’ve always tried to make my health a top priority. It’s hard to find time to workout as a mom, but if you start the habits while you’re still pregnant, they will carry over into your schedule after your little one is born. You might be too tired in the 1st trimester, but you’ll want to start pregnancy at home fitness program and make plans to transition into a at home postpartum exercise plan after you’ve recovered from delivering. A lot of people don’t realize that it doesn’t take much time to workout and stay healthy while pregnant with a 2nd trimester workouts. Besides, it gives you an excuse to go shopping for post pregnancy workout pants!
