This is something I make up for my husband and eldest son when they go on long walks. They did the West Highland Way last year and are doing the Caledonian Challenge this year - wouldn't be without their KMcake!! Great way to get that extra boost of energy.
1 lb sugar (can be white or brown)
1/4 pint milk
1/2 to 1 teaspoonful peppermint essence OR a few drops of peppermint oil.
Dissolve the sugar in the milk using a heavy pan over a low heat.
Bring to the boil, stirring constantly, and cook until a little of the mixture dropped into cold water forms a soft ball when rolled between index finger and thumb. (237 degrees F/ 114 degrees C.) Remove from the heat; add the flavourings and stir until thick. Pour on to an oiled, shallow tray and mark into bars. Cut when cold.
