To hannah23c - Some stores sell "already" crushed peppermint. One store is the chain store "Joann's". You can find this item packaged in bags around the holidays only.
I made these tarts and took to a Christmas party. Not only were they well received, but they made a beautiful presentation. I placed them on a white tray. I did end up making a double batch for the large gathering. (Be sure to sprinkle on the powdered sugar right before serving. Had to promise the recipe to quite a few people.
