    You can make this in other flavors too, but peppermint is my favorite.

      I made this with cinnamon oil instead of the peppermint. It turn out great and was fairly easy. i poured mine into an 8x8 pan and when it was cool, slid it into a zip lock bag to beat it with a rolling pin. I ended up with good size pieces--sharp but to get not-so sharp pieces I think you'd need a mold or something. The powdered sugar is a nice touch. I passed mine around work and received great reviews. Thanks for sharing.

      Made this for Xmas and wasn't really pleased with how it turned out. I had trouble breaking it into pieces after it cooled. It broke into pieces that were large and very pointy. i followed the recipe exactly but I couldn't get it too crack like it should. i don't think I would make again will try another recipe next time.
