  1. In large bowl, whisk egg white until frothy, but not stiff. Stir in confectioners' sugar and peppermint extract. You may need to knead it with your hands. If you wish to add food coloring, knead it in, and keep kneading until the color is evenly distributed.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Form the dough into small balls, place on cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Cover and let sit overnight in a cool, dry place, until set.

This did not work for me at all, unfortunately. The sugar and extract would not set and I ended up throwing it out.
