Candy Coating Mints
Ingredients and Supplies
  • 1 pound candy coating
  • candy coloring (optional)
  • 15 drops peppermint oil
  • 1 tablespoon paramount crystals
  • squeeze bottle
  • candy molds
Melt candy coating and paramount crystals. Add coloring if an exact color is desired. Add 12-15 drops of concentrated flavors or oil (peppermint is most popular, although spearmint or wintergreen may also be used). Pour into squeeze bottle. Squeeze melted candy into molds. Tap to even out and to get rid of air bubbles. Place in freezer for a few minutes until the candy feels cold and the mold is cloudy. The candy should fall out and should be shiny. If it is not, leave in the freezer a little longer.
