    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    pkgs

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb gum paste (from candy section of craft store)
    • 15 -20 drops essential oils, peppermint (food grade)
    • 1/4 teaspoon red food coloring (or sub paste or gel food coloring)
    • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Open bag of gum paste & add the peppermint (or other flavor of your choosing).
    2. 2
      Close bag & knead until well incorporated.
    3. 3
      Remove 1/2 of gum paste (cover & set aside).
    4. 4
      Add food coloring to paste left in bag & knead to incorporate.
    5. 5
      - From this point, you may want to wear some kitchen gloves (you know - thin, food handling type, so you don't end up with red hands. You may also want to work on parchment or a cutting board to keep your counter from possibly staining :) -.
    6. 6
      Remove red paste from bag, finish kneading color in, if necessary.
    7. 7
      Working fairly quickly, to avoid the candy drying out (you can use the powdered sugar to dust the surface you're working on).
    8. 8
      Split red & white pastes in half & roll in to 4 long, thin ropes.
    9. 9
      Place 4 ropes together & roll into one rope approximately 1/2 inch in diameter.
    10. 10
      With a very sharp knife cut into 1/4 inch pieces.
    11. 11
      If they squish a little, due to cutting, just press back in to round.
    12. 12
      Toss in a 9 x 13 baking pan and air dry for 48 hours.
    13. 13
      Package in little cellophane bags or little tins (washed), etc, from the craft store.
    14. 14
      NOTE - Cooking time is drying time.
