Peppermint Creams
Such a nice recipe, I can make them as minty as I like! Made for Christmas as 'keep them quiet before lunch' nibbles, they went...
Sue04 

Icing sugar, sift

225g

Natural peppermint extract

1-2 tsp

Edible glitter

Plain chocolate, melted

55g

You will also need:

small icing or biscuit cutters

Step 1 of 3

Put the icing sugar into a bowl and gradually mix in the condensed milk to make a soft dough (you may not need all the condensed milk). Add the peppermint extract and mix until you have a smooth, kneadable dough.  Add a little more icing sugar if the mixture gets too sticky.

Step 2 of 3

Dust a clean surface with plenty of icing sugar and roll out the mixture to 5mm (¼") thickness. Cut into shapes with the icing or biscuit cutter or you can cut them however you like with a knife. Chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours or leave in a cool place to dry (about 2-3 hours).
 

Step 3 of 3

Drizzle the peppermint creams with the melted chocolate or dip to coat one half. Allow to set. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container and use within 3 weeks.
 

You could cut these into thin squares and when dry dunk them gently into melted dark chocolate until they are completely coated.  Leave to set for home made version of After Eights!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy and taste delicious Put condensed milk in first then just added icing sugar until it got to the right consistency. Instead of rolling out I did quenelles with 2 spoons and flattened them with the back of spoon. Kept the mess to a minimum. When dried I dipped them in dark melted chocolate. Absolutely yummy, went down a storm with my family.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tastes good but .... The mixture was far to runny, I followed all of recipe exactly including weighing the carnation evaporated milk. I had to add at least double the amount of icing sugar to make this even slightly rollable. Not sure where I went wrong
