- Add fragrance and stabilizer mix to the dry mix and carefully mix together.
- Add liquid ingredients slowly while kneading ingredients together. The mixture will begin to take on the consistency of dough.
- When the mixture begins to hold together in your hand, split the batch in half and place half of the dough in a second bowl.
- To the first bowl, add the stained glass santa red liquid color (about 10-15 drops). Put on gloves and knead dough to incorporate color. You can add more color if you wish. Just be careful not to over color the dough or it may stain when used.
- Divide the Red dough into two equal parts and roll out the dough into two logs of equal size.
- Divide the white dough into two equal parts and roll out the dough into two logs of equal size.
- Place a sheet of wax paper on your counter or table top. Combine all four logs alternating colors to create a swirled peppermint stick. Carefully work the dough, rolling and squeezing until the log is approximately 1 ½” in diameter and 20” long.
