Vampire Breath Mints
Wilton's(R) red food coloring gel can be used in place of the liquid red food coloring, if desired.
This batch was made with Wilton's(R) food coloring gel. It made this very stiff and mold-able, so work fast on this. If you use plain food coloring the batch will be thick but not mold-able.
Alternate way to make: Pour mixture onto a jelly roll baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, covering bottom and edges of pan. Spread peppermint mixture evenly. When cooled, turn over pan, remove foil and break into huge pieces.
