Ingredients

  • 3 packages unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup water separated
  • 1 ½ cups white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • ¼ cup crushed peppermint candy
  • 4 cups powdered sugar separated

Instructions
 

  • Prepare a 9×13 inch baking dish by sifting 2 cups powdered sugar evenly over the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
    4 cups powdered sugar
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, sprinkle gelatin over ½ cup water. Let bloom.
    3 packages unflavored gelatin, 1 cup water
  • In a 2-quart saucepan, combine white granulated sugar, corn syrup, salt, and remaining ½ cup water. Stir to dissolve and bring to a boil, stirring to ensure no scorching. Bring mixture to 240°F.
    1 cup water, 1 ½ cups white granulated sugar, 1 cup light corn syrup, ½ tsp kosher salt
  • Remove from heat and pour into a 2-cup heatproof glass measuring cup.
  • Pour a small amount of liquid on prepared gelatin and mix it on medium speed.
  • With the mixer running, continue to drizzle in liquid down the side of the bowl, making sure to not pour directly on the beater. Once all liquid is added, turn the mixer on high and beat until the mixture is cooled, fluffy, and has grown in volume, 8-10 minutes.
  • Add vanilla bean seeds and peppermint extract. Beat 20 seconds.
    1 vanilla bean, 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • Pour mixture into prepared pan, smoothing out the top into an even layer.

    ¼ cup crushed peppermint candy, 4 cups powdered sugar
  • Let cool 4-6 hours or overnight.
  • Cut and dip sliced edges in powdered sugar to ensure the squares won't stick to each other.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
