Notes:
• I find the peppermint oil is more potent and brings a lot more flavor than the extract. Peppermint extract is fine too. It is a matter of personal choice (and what you have on hand!)
• I prefer a silicone mat to make bark – it is truly simple to remove once cold.
• The old bag ’em and roll ’em is a simple trick my grandmother taught me eons ago. Back when I learned it was a tad trickier as resealable bags were not a thing. We used plastic wrap or baggies (the fold over kind for sandwiches). Just make sure you don’t lock the air into your resealable bag. Leave an end a tiny bit open. Otherwise, you could have a nice peppermint explosion.
