2 egg whites
1 lb. icing sugar
1 Tbsp. peppermint flavor
Red and green food coloring
Mix the egg whites and icing sugar in a large bowl to make a stiff
dough. Add the peppermint, mix and roll dough out on wax paper
using your hands into a block. Cut into 1inch cubes and
make a well in each cube with your finger and place a drop of
food coloring in each and knead it to form ribbons of solid color.
Shape into balls and place on wax paper covered baking sheets.
Let sit for a few minutes until a light crust forms on the surface.
Press each candy with a fork and let sit for a day to harden.
Makes 4 dozen.
