1 pound powdered sugar 1 egg white Peppermint extract Black licorice Blue or green food coloring
Beat the egg white lightly and blend with a small amount of powdered sugar and a few drops of peppermint extract. Mix until you get a fine dry paste. Using your hands, knead the paste adding small amounts of sugar until the paste will absorb it. Separate a small quantity to make the irises, adding a few drops of blue or green coloring and mix. Roll the white mixture into small round balls. Press a hole in the top of the ball with your finger and add some of the colored mixture. Cut a small piece off of the licorice and place in the middle of the colored mixture for the pupil. Voila!
