No, this isn't a Christmas carol by Chubby Checker, it's a melt-in-your-mouth Peppermint Twist Mint! It's a perfect gift, especially when placed on an elegant candy dish and wrapped with pretty tissue paper. What better way to say, "Happy Holidays"?

What You'll Need:
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
What To Do:
  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with waxed paper.
     
  2. In large bowl, beat all ingredients until crumbly. Knead until dough is smooth then divide into four balls.
     
  3. Roll each ball into 18-inch long rope. Twist together two ropes at a time and cut into 1-inch pieces. Place on baking sheet, cover loosely, and allow to dry overnight.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Because they've dried, you can store them out of the fridge. These work really well rolled out (on parchment or wax paper) and cut with tiny cookie cutters.

How do you store this candy after it has dried overnight?

I am getting ready to make these I would say the fridge!

Orzo Mushroom Toss

At first glance, you might think this is a rice dish, but it's actually a pasta side dish! Ya see, orzo is a small, rice-shaped pasta, that's often used interchangeably with rice. In our recipe for Orzo Mushroom Toss, we used orzo for its nuttier flavor, which goes great with the fresh mushrooms!
