Going for a fun Halloween idea, thought of my pink peppermint patties and instantly knew what to do. Same recipe, just different concept. Enjoy.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt white chocolate in top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, 10 to 20 minutes.

  • Place candy canes in a food processor; pulse until powdery with tiny pieces. Stir candy cane powder into melted white chocolate until well mixed, thick, and somewhat lumpy. Add food coloring until desired color is reached.

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon mixture, about 2 teaspoons per mint, onto the baking sheet, about 1-inch apart. Cool to room temperature and store mints in a resealable bag.

Cook's Notes:

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.

These were nasty looking and I mean that in a good way! Vampire breath mints indeed. My red food coloring bottle was down to the end and when I squeezed I got a "blood" spray instead of a drop. It was perfect and I went with it. I'll try the gel next time so that I can mold them and make them smaller. What a fun recipe! Read More

YUM! I had a little white chocolate left over from coating pretzels so I thought I would give this a try. As candy canes are not available yet I used starlight mints. I put them in a zip lock bag and pounded them. I did use plain food coloring and they were not moldable. Next time I will try gel coloring and make them a little smaller. They were excellent! Thank you mis7up for sharing! Read More
