Rose’s Super Easy Strawberry Creams

This is a lovely Christmas recipe to make with children, as it requires very little effort for maximum tasty results. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that doesn’t like these, I mean, what’s not to like? They’re perfect for wrapping up in cellophane, tying with a bow and giving out as little homemade Christmas gifts. They’d also be right at home in a homemade Christmas hamper or Christmas Eve Box.


250g Icing sugar

1 Beaten Egg White

A few drops of Strawberry Essence

A bar of melted chocolate


Sieve the icing sugar into a large bowl. Mix in the egg white a little at a time and stop adding it when you have a soft dough.

Add 3 drops of the strawberry essence, mix well and taste to see if it’s strawberry enough for you.

Drop teaspoons of the mixture, about the size of a cherries, on to baking parchment paper on a large board or tray

Leave the them to dry for about 3-4 hrs, or overnight.

Melt some chocolate in the microwave, very slowly, and dunk them in.

Leave to harden and enjoy!

They’re best when eaten up within 1 month.
