Lynn's Passive-Aggressive Christmas Candy Recipe....

The latest news bite is not only a recipe for candy that would rot teeth at ten paces, it's also an unsubtle hint that Lynn is either prodding Katie to have children OR she thinks that Katie is expecting but hasn't told her yet. (Plus also, she shares her "Don't measure things exactly because that involves math" foolosophy.)


Here's a recipe for easy to make Christmas candy that you can enjoy with your kids. This was a tradition in our family and I look forward to sharing it with grandchildren some day!

Peppermint creams:

All you need is icing sugar, egg white, oil of peppermint and food colouring. I never measure...it's all by how it FEELS!

Dump about a cup of icing sugar into a bowl. Take an egg white and mix it into the sugar. What you want to make is a dough, so keep adding sugar until you have something the consistency of soft plasticine.

Add a drop or two of oil of peppermint to taste. Be careful, this flavouring is strong! Form the mass into a small log about 1.5 inches in diameter and cut into cubes. Poke your finger into each cube to make a "well". Into each well, drop a tiny bit of food colouring (leave one cube white for contrast).

Knead each cube until you have the desired colour (kids will love this part!) Roll into balls and place on wax paper - on a cookie sheet. In a few minutes, the surface will dry enough to allow you to press each ball with a fork and flatten it slightly.

Leave the coloured candies over night to harden (might take a bit longer...it varies) then place in a bowl to enjoy.

This candy is as much fun to make as it is to eat! Please tell me how your kids managed with my recipe - I'd love to know.
