I am enchanted by these Spider Web Peppermint Patties!
And these are in that vein. (Is that a Halloween pun??)
Candy plus icing, and done.
I used peppermint extract to flavor the icing, which was nice with the peppermint candy, but you could also use vanilla.
I made icing with a scoop of powdered sugar, a sprinkle of meringue powder, a dash of peppermint extract, and a splash of water.
(You can see the actual recipe on my Chocolate Almond Mummy Cookies, but here I used peppermint extract instead of almond.)
I put the icing in a baggy, snipped off the end, and drew the webs with the icing on top of the York Peppermint Patties. I drew an asterisk, then made a swishy circle in the shape of a spider web.
I lost the plastic spider-shaped rings I thought I had, which would have looked cute in the photos, but the candy still looked good. And the kids were super happy!
Happy Halloween Snacking!
