Mint Cream Recipe

Snuggled down with a mug of tea watching Christmas Eve TV when suddenly.... "No! I've forgotten to get Great Uncle Walter Twice Removed a present!!" It's 6 'o' clock, Sainsbury's shut an hour ago and Amazons 1 day delivery won't help you now. There's only one thing to do... get in the kitchen and bake your heart out!!
Mint Cream Recipe

1 Egg white
340g Icing Sugar
Food Colouring
Mint Essence
Chocolate

1. Separate your yolk from your white. Keep the white. 
2. Sift your sugar into a big bowl. Stir in the egg until it is stiff. 
3. Mix in a dash of mint essence and food colouring of your choice (blue or green works well, you only need a tiny bit)
4. Line your baking tray with grease-proof paper.
5. Roll out your mixture and cut into little circles. I used the top of a port glass to cut mine. 
6. Place on the baking tray and put in the fridge overnight. 
7. Melt your chocolate and get the mint creams out of the fridge. Dunk half the mint cream in the chocolate and then put it back in the fridge for 30 minutes. 
Have a lovely Christmas Eve readers. Stay safe, be merry, eat food. And remember, go to bed early else Santa might not make that special visit :)
