This is SUCH a great base recipe I gave it 5 stars.... I haven't used actual crushed peppermint (too scared it will fall), so I use peppermint extract instead. I've used other extracts with fantastic results as well... it just depends what I have on hand (vanilla, almond, etc.) and even added finely shaved chocolate once. Yum! These make wonderful and easy sweet treats for holidays and special occassions... just make sure you wait for a low-humidity day and store them in airtight containers or they will get chewy very fast. I usually fill a storage baggie with the mixture (carefully), and then I cut off a corner so I can squeeze out pretty little dollops about 2 inches in diameter. Works great! One other note: the cream of tartar isn't necessary in my experience... works just as well without.
