“ Brand: Asda / Type: Baking Aids „
I had a bit of a baking day with my little sister today and when she dropped the bag of icing sugar and bust the bag I decided to use it up and make some peppermint creams instead of having the dusty job of putting all the sugar into a container.
We usually use the Super Cook food colourings and flavourings so I was a bit surprised to see Asda's own brand peppermint flavouring in the cupboard.
It comes in a tiny bottle like what food colouring comes in and when you open the bottle it smells mega strong, you only need a bit to get a nice peppermint flavour and in a nearly full bag of icing sugar all I had to use was about 20 drops of this flavouring.
The taste it gave the peppermint creams was delish, it's a nice strong peppermint flavour but has also got a tiny bit of sweetness about it that takes the strength away a bit.
I put a drop on my finger to taste and it was nice but you wouldn't want to drink a glass of it! lol I reckon this could be used for anything you'd use Super Cook or another brand of peppermint flavouring in, it's not majorly cheaper either so it's a bit of a mystery why my mum brought this brand instead of the tried and tested!
It worked out good though and everyone is recovering in front of the Villa match now, my dad ate so many peppermint creams that he can't even get his BIG MATCH beers down and keeps saying he shouldn't have ate that many! pmsl!
Recommended.... for all your peppermint needs!!!
