Creamy Mints

  • 1 pound box 10x sugar (4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons boiling water or more
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint oil or any other flavor desired
  • food coloring
  • granulated sugar

Combine ingredients adding flavoring last. Cream well with hands until consistency of pie dough. If too sticky, add a little extra 10x sugar. Chill about 15 minutes. Roll into small balls. I used candy molds to shape the mints. Roll the balls in granulated sugar then press into the candy mold-sprinkle the back of the candy with some more granulated sugar the release the candy from the mold onto waxed paper. For chocolate candies-flavor with 2 TBS. cocoa and 1 tsp. vanilla Allow candy to sit out uncovered to harden about 8 hours. These freeze well. Makes about 80 candies. I used small rubber candy molds like snowmen, Christmas trees etc. for the holidays. You can make any shape for any occasion, these are pretty and tasty.
