This simple recipe yields a decadent treat – a candy and brittle and homey cake rolled into one. The quality of the peppermint extract really makes a difference; I tasted a rich but not too strong peppermint, with none of the artificial or toothpaste-like notes that you often taste when using other extracts.
Butter an eight- by eight-inch pan.
