  1. Add all dry ingredients to your stand mixer, and mix on slow with the dough hook.
  2. While mixing on slow, add the vegetable oil and peppermint extract.
  3. Turn mixer up to medium speed, and slowly and carefully add in boiling water. The mixture should start to come together to form a soft dough that pulls from the sides of the bowl. Add more boiling water as needed to get soft dough effect.

  4. Remove half of playdough, and set aside for use as white playdough.
  5. Push an indent into the middle of the remaining playdough in the mixing bowl and squirt about five drops of red food coloring into indent.

  6. Mix on medium speed until coloring is evenly dispersed and dough turns red. Add more food coloring and mix as needed to make playdough the desired red color.

  7. Play with playdough as is or layer in a mason jar for a fun holiday gift!
