  1. I love that you made it look like a peppermint! That’s adorable. I wonder if you could get the red to look a bit more red, though? I suppose you don’t want to overdo it with the food coloring, but it would be really neat if it were more red and less pink.

    It’s an awesome gift either way!

    1. Hi Michelle,

      It is an awesome gift and thanks for your input. I preferred not to go red but the great thing about this recipe is how easy it is to tweak it to your liking. Thanks again!
