Mint Piggy

4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp peppermint oil
1 square of aluminum foil (12x24 inches or larger)
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1-2 Tbsp margarine
1 tsp marshmallow creme
2-3 drops red food color

Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a heavy, large saucepan over
medium heat. Insert candy thermometer in pan and bring to 300-degree
boil. Remove from heat, add marshmallow, red food color and peppermint
oil and stir vigorously as mixture froths up, cools and begins to
thicken.

Place foil on counter and smear with margarine. Scraping bottom
and sides of pan, pour candy on to foil to form a thin layer.
While candy is cooling, press a buttered cookie cutter (a pig or
any holiday style cutter) down into candy and leave it sitting
there until the candy sets up hard). Break the candy outside the
cookie cutter away, gently remove candy from the cutter and it is
ready to serve or place in a nice pouch with a string to close the
pouch.
