Egg free candy cane chocolate peppermint creams recipe. Crushed candy canes for decoration and inside the creams too. Smothered with dark chocolate too.


  • 225g (1¾ cups) icing (confectioners’) sugar
  • 115g (6 tbsp) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • (optional) 2 candy canes
  • green food colouring
  • 55g plain/dark chocolate


  1. Sift the icing (confectioner’s) sugar into a bowl. Add the sweetened condensed milk and mix until a sticky dough just starts to form. Add the peppermint extract and continue mixing to form a dough. If using, add 1½ crushed candy canes at this point.
  2. You can add more peppermint extract if you like. If so, you may need to add a little more icing (confectioners’) sugar if too sticky.
  3. Dust your hands, work surface and a rolling pin with more icing (confectioners’) sugar and roll out the dough to approx. 5mm thick (approx. ¼in).
  4. Using mini cookie cutters or a knife, cut out your shapes and allow to set for approx. 2-3 hours. Longer in humid conditions.
  5. Once set, melt the chocolate and either dip or drizzle over the peppermint creams. Sprinkle the remaining reserved ½ crushed candy cane over the melted chocolate and allow to set.
  6. Enjoy.

    Okay, I’m STILL trying to process the fact that you dislike mint (!?!?!?) but I will forgive you because these cookies look super yummy. I love mint, and chocolate + mint are like, a match made in flavor heaven. Plus, these cookies are gorgeous!

    oh my goodness. I will take umm… the entire batch please? Especially with a texture of fondant – I am embarrassingly in love with fondant. I’ve ruined cakes form eating off the fondant before. Whoops! And mint + chocolate is necessary. I need chocolate with it :)

      Me too Sally, me too! The last time I used fondant, I ate a fist sized ball of it! 😳 The peppermint creams are pretty much like fondant on the outside but creamy and melt-in-the-mouth-like on the inside. Either way, they’re delicious. :)

    Not to crazy about mint on it’s own either, but with chocolate and I love it! These creams look so good that I’d like to eat the whole batch…right now!

    So beautiful! I personally don’t like dark chocolate and mint (though for some reason white chocolate seems to work splendidly for my finicky taste buds lol) BUT these are just so gorgeous I now wish I could try them. :)
