Mix icing sugar, liquid glucose, water and spirit vinegar in a thick bottom saucepan. Cook for around 10 minutes til 115C / 240F. Use a thermometer (if you own one) to be 100% sure.
Pour mix into an lightly oil-greased bowl and let cool 15 minutes. Add peppermint oil and work the mass until it turns white.
