Homemade Christmas Gift Ideas
These festive mint candies make the perfect homemade gift for friends and family over the Christmas break. A home-made gift is always the best gift because it was created by someone with love and care. Once you’ve made your Peppermint Cream Christmas tree, add it to a small gift box or Christmas themed cake or cookie tin. I always buy a few new seasonal kegs from Amazon every year and use them to store delicious homemade snacks.
How to Make Peppermint Cream
Because this peppermint cream is made using sweetened condensed milk, this candy is so delicious. This festive recipe is very simple to make. First, weigh all the ingredients and stir together the condensed milk and icing sugar to form a lumpy mixture. Then add your desired peppermint flavor and food coloring. Obviously I chose green this time because I used a Christmas tree cookie cutter. Mix the mixture until you get a smooth dough ball. Now all that’s left is to sprinkle some icing sugar on a clean work surface and roll the dough balls 1/2cm thick. Now cut your chosen festive shape with a cookie cutter and you’re done. At this point, you can choose whether to add melted chocolate or add icing to finish off the Peppermint Cream Candy.
How many calories are in Peppermint Cream?
This Christmas Tree Peppermint Cream contains 111 calories each. However, the calorie content will vary depending on the size of the cookie cutter and the thickness of the peppermint cream. Peppermint cream contains quite a bit of sugar, so it should be consumed in moderation. Homemade peppermint cream is a great seasonal snack and a great way to recharge your guests after Christmas dinner.
