Blogmas #19 Chocolate Covered Peppermint Creams




As you saw from my last Blogmas post I baked some festive peppermint cakes, if you have not seen this post you can check that out here.

After icing and decorating these cakes I had ALOT of leftover icing which seemed such a waste to throw away.

I remembered once making peppermint creams out of some icing and thought why not give it a go with the leftovers. So to the runny icing I added in more and more icing sugar and mixed until the icing formed almost a dough. I then made this into circles and placed them on a plate in the fridge to harden for at least 3 hours.

After this it was time for the decoration the icing was still sticky so I decided to cover it all in melted chocolate to harden, thus solving this issue.

I melted a whole bar of milk chocolate and covered each individual peppermint cream and decorated with some festive sprinkles!

Put these again in the fridge to harden. If you're smarter than I was you will put them on grease proof paper on a plate rather than straight onto the plate.

Once the chocolate has hardened your peppermint creams are done. A nice sweet treat made from leftovers that otherwise would have gone to waste.

Thanks for Reading!
