Print recipe




150 piece(s)

  • 400 grams icing sugar
  • 80 grams Butter, cubed
  • 1 level tablespoon whole milk, If you are using oils instead of essense for flavour, increase the milk amount to 2 tablespoons
  • 2 level teaspoons Peppermint essence/extract, You can use an ingestable peppermint oil as an alternative - but only a few drops would be required, so milk amount needs to be increased as per above
  • 3 drops Food colouring, Optional

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place icing sugar and butter into the bowl and mix for 20sec/sp5.  Scape down the sides and mix for a further 10sec/sp5.  Mix should resemble a fine and clumpy crumb.  Scape down the sides again.

  2. Add milk, peppermint (if you intend to flavour the whole batch) and colour (if required) and mix for 10sec/sp5.

    If you wish to do multiple flavours and colours, you can add these during the kneading in the next step, so just mix in the milk in this step.

  3. Turn/scrape onto a clean kneading surface, sprinkled with icing sugar - do not use your thermomat as you will need to slice on the surface.  Work the dough into a smooth ball, adding a little more icing sugar to the bench/dough as/if required.  The dough texture should be that of a very soft smooth fondant.  If it is cracking at all, it is getting too dry, so either add a touch more milk or work it in your hands a bit (the warmth should help melt the butter and keep it moist).  Add in colour and flavours here if you haven't done so already.

  4. Break off a small handful (cover the remaining dough so it doesn't dry out) and roll it into a log until it is approx 1cm wide, then cut off 1.5cm lengths and place them on a single layer on a baking sheet.  Repeat with remaining dough.

  5. Allow to dry overnight.  Store layered between wax paper in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-4 weeks

    Just realised I bought icing mixture instead of pure icing sugar, will it still work?
