Hi everyone! I finally came back to blog-land and brought along a wonderful recipe for peppermint humbugs! I found this recipe in a Harry Potter cookbook that I downloaded on my eReader. I haven't tried it yet myself but it sounds delicious so I'm determined to try.


  • 1/3 cups water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • a few drops of food colouring (any colour)

  1. Spray an 8-inch pan with cooking spay and set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine the water, sugar and cream of tartar and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture begins to boil. If sugar crystals form on the sides of the pan, wash down the sides with a pastry brush dipped in hot water.
  2. Clip a candy thermometer to the side of the pot. Reduce the heat to medium and continue, stirring occasionally, until the temperature reaches 260F. Remove the pan from heat. Add the peppermint extract and food colouring and mix well.
  3. Pour the syrup into the prepared pan. Let the syrup cool for a few minuets. Put on a pair of clean heavy rubber gloves and the gloves with cooking spray. Rub your together to evenly distribute the oil. If you can tolerate the heat, you can skip the gloves and just oil your hands.
  4. Pick up the hot candy and begin pulling it, twisting along the rope as you pull. this will be difficult at first, as the candy will be a mushy glob and will seem to just gloop and droop. Gradually it will stiffen and be easier to pull. Fold the rope in half and then in half again and twist and pull again. Repeat and repeat and repeat. As you pull and twist, the candy will begin to look more opaque and will take on a pearlescent sheen, very pretty to behold. When the candy is to stiff to pull, snip the rope at 3/4-inch intervals onto a sheet of parchment paper. The candies will look like teeny-weeny pillows. Do not let the humbugs touch each other; instead wrap each piece individually in parchment paper or plastic wrap to prevent sticking. Store in an airtight container. the humbugs will begin to recrystallize after two or three days.

Hope you have fun making them!
