Our experience in making peppermint creams recipe

Making peppermint creams recipe is one great hit for us. Eyes lit up at the sight of melted chocolate. Memories of our [m] is for mixing cooking experience flooded their minds; stories of writing in melted chocolate, custard, and condensed milk made us all smile.

Little fingers quickly worked at covering the peppermint creams in chocolate; they wanted to finish the remains of the melted chocolate themselves! It was a good thing they wanted to work quickly because as the melted cooking chocolate sets, it becomes harder to work with. It’s all so fun!

  1. I can’t wait to try this. I love all things peppermint and for some reason this country is not into minty things 🙁 so I must make it on my own. Mari

  2. I wasn’t too sure if MY kids would like them as they seem to dislike ANYTHING GREEN (they resemble vegetables – oh no!) – lol. They loved these green mouthfuls though.

  3. Makes my mouth water just looking at them!

  4. Would these have to be refrigerated since they contain the egg white? Or are they shelf stable? These look so great! I’m thinking teacher gifts. 🙂
