  • 1 Cup white peppermint candies, crushed

Directions

Line an 8-inch pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.

Peppermint Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peppermint Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
