Don’t they make a pretty addition to your holiday table?

I found this recipe in one of those cookbooks you find at the grocery store during the holiday season.  Sometimes they are really loaded with wonderful recipes. This book is from 2000. I have been making this Peppermint Candy for my family all these years. I hope your family will enjoy it also.

Author Shirley Wood of Intelligent Domestications


  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 3 Tbsp. Light corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. peppermint extract I prefer Watkins brand
  • Food coloring if desired


  • Line several sheet pans with waxed paper.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, water and corn syrup.
  • Cook over low heat until sugar dissolves and mixture is smooth, stirring frequently.
  • Remove saucepan from heat and stir in extract.
  • If using food coloring, separate into bowls and tint each bowl with desired color.
  • Be sure to use tall bowls so that you can sit each bowl into another bowl containing hot water. The hot water bath will keep the candy workable. I keep hot water in a tea kettle to use throughout this process. Be careful NOT to get the hot water in your candy mixture.
  • Drop mixture by teaspoon onto waxed paper forming small patties.
  • Let stand 24 hours or until firm. Can be stored in airtight containers. I store them in the refrigerator because we like the cold candy but refrigeration is not required.
