Step 1 - Place your egg whites in the bowl of your stand mixer and add the whisk attachment. Sift your confectioners sugar and set aside in another bowl.
Step 2 - Turn your mixer on a medium speed for 1 minute, add in your cream of tarter and salt until foamy.
Step 3 - Slowly add in your vanilla, peppermint and confectioners 1/3 cup at a time until all is incorporated, then bring up to a high speed and blend for 5 minutes (stopping to scrape the sides of the bowl a couple times). Whisk until stiff peaks form and the mixture is glossy.
