      This makes for a TON of candy!! I couldn't for the life of me find either the mint molds or the fondant cutters so I formed little leaves by hand. I did have to add probably 2 more cups of powdered sugar, but that is likely because I'm in a humid, hot OK summer. The candies were a little fragile, but again I wonder if that was because there is just so much humidity here that they couldn't really dry well. I plan to try these again at Christmas to add to my goody boxes. These have a light creamy texture that just melts in your mouth! Simple and yummy, I plan to try various flavorings.
