Homemade Butter-mints


Hello! Do you like butter mints?  I do, and I usually buy mine, but I couldn't find any this year.  We don't participate in the winter holiday but it is a good time to find some things.  So I decided to make some and they are so very easy!!!

You just combine all the ingredients in the bowl and stir until combined.

Butter mints
1/2 cup butter
2 Tbs heavy cream
3/4 tsp peppermint extract
1 pinch of salt
1 pound of powdered sugar (about 3 3/4 cups)


I then put some extra sugar on a plate to role some of the mints in so I could handle them easier.


I then made long "snakes" and then cut them into small pieces with a butter knife.


They are so rich that you don't want them to be too big.


They are such a delightful little treat and quick to make I encourage you to try them!
