Kindness In The Kitchen

9 June 2020

With this week’s ‘act of kindness’ being to cook for others, we encouraged our Year 7 students to put on their aprons and step into the kitchen. 

All we can say is – wow, what an impressive set of results we received! We’ve included some of the photos below as well as a delicious recipe for peppermint creams.

What will you be cooking up this weekend?


Peppermint Creams

Peppermint creams are a delicious and moreish snack. They are easy to make and have only a few ingredients.  

*Allergens: Contain milk and soya*


  • 225g icing sugar
  • 115g condensed milk
  • Peppermint extract to taste (1-2 tsp recommended)
  • Dark chocolate, melted


  • Mixing bowl
  • Biscuit cutters
  • A tray to cool the peppermint creams on
  • An airtight box for storage


  1. Put the icing sugar into a bowl and slowly mix in the condensed milk until a soft dough is formed.
  2. Add a small amount of peppermint extract and mix until you have a smooth, kneadable dough. Add a little more icing sugar if it gets too sticky.
  3. Dust a clean surface with plenty of icing sugar and roll out the mixture to about 1cm thick. Cut into shapes with the biscuit cutter.
  4. Chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
  5. Melt the chocolate either in the microwave or using a bain-marie, then dip the peppermint creams so that they are half-coated with chocolate.
  6. Leave to set and enjoy!
