Lemon & Peppermint Cremes

Today i thought i'd share with you one of the treats my mum and i made for Christmas, and this one is so simple that you can quite easily still make them before Christmas. Cremes only require a few ingredients, and you can tailor them to include your favourite things.

All you'll need is:

Fondant Icing
Food Flavouring - Some of mine are Lemon and some are Peppermint
and Chocolate - I use Galaxy

And honestly, they're so simple to make. All you need to do is put some of your icing - the amount depending on how many cremes you want to make - in a bowl and add your food flavouring of choice into it. Massage the flavouring into the icing, and add more flavouring if you'd like depending on how much flavour you'd like. Continue to massage it in until you're happy the flavour is evenly distributed. If the icing becomes too sticky, then add a touch of icing sugar.

Then, or while you're doing this, melt your chocolate either in the microwave or over boiling water in a pan and completely melt until there are no more lumps ready for dipping your icing into.

Then, shape your cremes - as you can see in the pictures above i cut mine into star shapes but i also did some just in classic rounds and the rounds are much easier to get out of the melted chocolate, the stars are more effective but they do get a little splodgy and loose there shape after adding the chocolate.

All that's left to do is cover your fondant icing with chocolate, and i did this by just popping the cremes into the chocolate, turning then around and then spooning them out. When they're covered place them onto greaseproof paper and then pop into the fridge until set.

And voila! You have yourself some cremes. The next batch i'm hoping to make are rose and violet flavour cremes if i can find the right flavouring, because they're my favourite!

Let me know if you give these a go!

  1. I love how simple these are too make but they're SO yummy! I always think they taste like they were much more complicated to make! Yours look much neater than my past attempts, I always make such a mess!
