Strawberry Mints
Serves 60 | 180 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • Corn Syrup (.33 cups)
  • Mint Extract (.5 tsp)
  • Powdered Sugar (3.75 cups)
  • Strawberry Gelatin (3 tablespoons)
  • Unsalted Butter (.5 cups)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, blend all the ingredients together until fully combined. The dough will be very crumbly. Once you pinch a small amount in your hand, roll until it comes together.
  2. Make any size mints you like. We recommend using 2 teaspoons of dough, rolling it into a ball, then placing it on parchment paper.
  3. Flatten each ball with the tines of a fork,
  4. Allow the mints to sit and get firm.
  5. After about 3 hours, put them in a bowl on your counter and leave them uncovered. They will get more firm the longer they sit. You may also refrigerate them after 3 hours. ENJOY!
