My Sister & I decided to make these mints for the candy contest, here is a easy tutorial to show you how we did it.
It's a fun thing to make & reminds us of playing with play-doh.. except, well.. you can eat this!
2 1/2 Cups Icing Sugar (Confectioner's Sugar)
3 Tablespoons Softened Butter or Margarine
2 Tablespoons Cream
1/2 Teaspoon Peppermint Flavouring (we only used 1/4 Teaspoon because we used real peppermint oil)
Note: I tried to add little notes to the pictures but it was taking waaay too long, sorry.
Step 1: Mix the Ingredients
Mix icing sugar , butter/margarine , cream & peppermint flavouring together in a bowl with a fork.
(If you don't feel that you're butter/margarine isn't soft enough put it in the microwave for about 10 seconds)
Your mixture might not seem like it would make good dough, but once you knead it in the next step you'll see that there's nothing to worry about.
