The Method for peppermint creams

Add the peppermint oil to the icing sugar, then whip the white of the egg and add to the mixture along with a teaspoon of cream and 2-3 drops of lemon juice.

Mix and knead the mixture and roll out on a board to the required thickness for your peppermint creams, cut out with a small round cutter, and place on a plate covered with greaseproof paper, leave to dry then place in the fridge to cool if you are going to cover in chocolate

For a chocolate covering for your peppermint creams, melt chocolate in a bowl over hot water (best quality plain cooking chocolate) and dip each peppermint cream in chocolate and place back on greaseproof paper when finished return to the fridge to harden.
