Ingredients

  • 3 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1-1/4 cups water, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

  2. Divide mixture into two small bowls; add four drops green food coloring to one bowl and four drops red to the other. Pour into two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Chill 3 hours or until firm.
  3. Loosen edges from pan with a knife; turn onto a sugared board. Cut into 1/2-in cubes; roll in sugar. Let stand at room temperature, uncovered, for 3-4 hours, turning every hour so all sides dry. Cover and chill. Yield: about 1 pound.
