Peppermint Pink Valentine Mold



"Don't throw out those Christmas candy canes they will come in handy with this recipe. This recipe can be easily doubled. Substituted 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies for the peppermint extract if you've got candies but no extract in the kitchen!" Original recipe yield: 6 servings.

INGREDIENTS:

1 (.25 ounce) package unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup white sugar, divided
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, separated
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
3 drops red food coloring
1 cup whipping cream, whipped


DIRECTIONS:

In a medium saucepan over no heat, combine gelatin, 1/4 cup sugar and salt, mix well and reserve. In a medium bowl, beat together egg yolks and milk, add to gelatin mixture.
Cook gelatin and egg mixture in saucepan over low heat; stir constantly until the gelatin dissolves and mixture thickens slightly or about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add peppermint extract or candy.
Add food coloring and mix. Chill in refrigerator until mixture is slightly thicker than the consistency of unbeaten egg whites.
In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Gradually add remaining sugar and beat until very stiff and fold into gelatin mixture; fold in whipped cream.
Turn into a 5-cup heart-shaped mold; chill until firm. Unmold and garnish with additional whipped cream, if desired; serve.
