  1. Measure out 350g of icing sugar.

  2. Sift 175g icing sugar into a bowl and add three tablespoons of cold water (you might need to add a few drops more but see how you ). Beat well with a spoon.

  3. Add a couple of drops of peppermint essence or peppermint oil (be sparing as it can be very strong, and you can always add more if needed).

  4. If your children find peppermint too strong a taste, why not try freshly squeezed orange juice? Remember to use less water with this alternative as the juice will make the icing sugar quite runny, too.

  5. Gradually add more of the measured out icing sugar and when it becomes too stiff to stir with the spoon, knead in the rest with your hands so it makes a soft sugary dough. Check it now to make sure it is minty enough to suit your taste.

  6. Scatter a little spare icing sugar onto a clean table surface and put your dough on this.

  7. Rub a little icing sugar onto a rolling pin then roll out the dough to about half a centimetre thickness.

  8. Invite the children to choose some pretty cutters to make shapes from the dough, or use the rim of an egg cup to make small round peppermint treats.

  9. Line a tray with greaseproof paper and place the shapes on this. Leave them in a dry warm place overnight to harden, then store them in an airtight food container.
