Peppermint Creams

Recipe by  

"The creams need to set overnight. If you wish to use chocolate, melt 2 ounces chocolate chips, then dip half of the cookie into it. You may also knead in food coloring before you mold them."

  1. In large bowl, whisk egg white until frothy, but not stiff. Stir in confectioners' sugar and peppermint extract. You may need to knead it with your hands. If you wish to add food coloring, knead it in, and keep kneading until the color is evenly distributed.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Form the dough into small balls, place on cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Cover and let sit overnight in a cool, dry place, until set.

This was a great recipe, but I found that adding about 1/6 c. of water helped to form the dough.

This did not work for me at all, unfortunately. The sugar and extract would not set and I ended up throwing it out.

These were ok. Personally I liked them, but my friends and family weren't thrilled. I also do not like the idea of uncooked egg whites in the recipe. The texture is kind of different and hard to get used to. It's not solid or's creamy and powdery combined.

i really liked this recipe, but i find it is even better when you replace the peppermint extract with vanilla extract. I also add about a teaspoon of water to the mixture to make it more manageable.

Very good recipe, after I took the suggestion of adding water. Without the water, it was nothing but a powdery mess. I also dipped these in white chocolate, which made a really pretty presentation.

The candy mixture was difficult to work with. The recipe suggests that this makes 12 servings. The peppermint flavor was so strong that I formed patties about the size of a half dollar and the recipe served 30. The candy tastes better when dipped in chocolate.

These were good but they tasted mostly like mint-flavored powdered sugar. They were much much better when dipped completely in semi-sweet chocolate.
