Turn the dough out onto a clean work surface dusted with powdered sugar and knead until smooth adding more powdered sugar if necessary.

Divide dough into as many portions as you would like colors/flavors.

Make a sort of bowl shape out of one of the pieces of dough. Pour in flavored extracts and add food coloring.

I made my candy hearts peppermint-vanilla (light pink and dark pink hearts) and vanilla bean (white hearts). It would be fun to try other flavorings like banana, orange, cherry, sour apple, etc.

Knead in the colors and flavors until well combined. Taste a piece of dough and add more extract if there is not enough. :)

could you just use flavored gelatin in step 1?
