This is a beautiful and delicious candy! I love adding it to candy dishes because it is so refreshing after a big meal or tons of sweet candy. I used 17 drops of food coloring and added an 1/8 tsp on peppermint extract. I am not a huge peppermint fan and this was the perfect amount. I also put crushed candy canes in a strainer and shook out most of the dust! Used a 15x10x1 pan. Thanks I will forever use this recipe.

Wonderful and easy! Looks great and tastes even better. i didn't add crushed candy canes to the top though, I forgot to reserve some and didn't feel like smashing anymore
