Cook's Notes

Wear latex gloves to protect your hands from the heat when making peppermint sticks. Work quickly (you might ask someone to help you) since candy will cool and harden fast. Pull pencil-thin pieces from the warm mass of candy, and cut into 7-inch lengths with kitchen scissors. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.
