Now add the Peppermint extract, a few drops of red food coloring, optional (until you get the pink-y color you want) stir well. Pour candy mixture into a prepared 8x8 dish that is lined with wax or parchment paper, sprinkle with crushed peppermint candy. Set in fridge at least 45 mins. Until cooled. Score with knife to cut into pieces, carefully break apart – then place back in fridge for a final 10 mins.
