Plain Chocolate Covered Peppermint Cream

Peppermint is one of the most widely used herbs in the world. And when you try one of Quiggin’s Peppermint Cream Bars, you’ll understand why.

What is Peppermint?

Peppermint is a hybrid mint that grows naturally. It can be found growing throughout Europe and North America. The Ancient Greeks and Romans used it to decorate their dining tables and adorn themselves.

But they also recognised its flavour and healing properties. We know they used peppermint to flavour wines and sauces, and they valued its medicinal qualities.

Why is Peppermint used medicinally?

• It contains a significant amount of vitamin C plus smaller amounts of vitamins A and B.
• Manganese and copper are found in peppermint. Both support good bone health.
• Perillyl alcohol is also found in peppermint and is believed to have powerful health benefits.

Bitter Sweet Flavours

Here at Quiggin’s, we love the combination of rich dark chocolate and the refreshing peppermint flavour. A popular choice, the plain chocolate’s bitterness and the strong mint flavour create a decadent and rich sweet sensation.

Interestingly, peppermint has a higher menthol content than its popular cousin spearmint. This provides peppermint with the recognisable flavour and cooling sensation that is sometimes described as spicey. Hence the use of pepper in its name.

Traditionally served as a digestif after a large meal, the chocolate-covered delights are now a popular pick-me-up whatever time of the day.

Traditional Recipe

It’s no secret that we know how to make mint confectionery. People love our Kendal Mint Cake, and our Peppermint Cream is just as popular.

Using the exact same recipe as our mint cake, we then add an enzyme that slowly softens the mixture transforming it into a smooth, invigorating cream. We then enrobe the cream with rich dark, Belgian chocolate creating the perfect chocolate to fondant ratio.

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans, our chocolate covered peppermint creams can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
