About this recipe: Perfect for gifts in Christmas hampers! These no-cook sweets can be served as they are or dipped in melted chocolate.
Instead of peppermint, you can use orange essence, lemon juice or strawberry essence.
Once set, if you like, you can melt 55g (2oz) chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Dip the peppermint creams in.
I want to make these to give as presents at Christmas, does anyone know how long they keep and how should I store them? - 26 Nov 2011
I found this recipe quite dry, so decided to add a few drops of water to the mixture which helped. - 17 Dec 2011
I found pepperiment essence today in Morrisons, in the aisle by the sugar and other baking products. Thanks! - 28 Nov 2011
