Butter Mints
Ingredients and Supplies
  • 8 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 5-6 tablespoons cold water
  • 10 drops cinnamon oil
  • 10 drops peppermint oil
  • 1 teaspoon butter flavor
  • food coloring
  • rubber candy mold
  • granulated sugar
In a large bowl, combine powdered sugar, melted butter, cold water, cinnamon oil, peppermint oil and butter flavor. On a smooth dry surface, knead until mixture is smooth and the consistency of pie dough. If necessary, add more water, a drop at a time. Color with food coloring. Pinch a small piece and roll into a ball, then roll in granulated sugar. Push into a rubber mold. Remove any excess candy. Turn mold over and let candy gently fall from mold. Let stand at room temperature 2 to 4 hours. Store in an airtight container up to 4 weeks.
