These are my favorite mints. I have made them with mint molds, and by rolling into balls and flattening with a patterned glass. I have used various food colorings depending on the occassion.
I am not going to rate these, because they just didn't work out for me. They were very crumbly and wouldnt stick together, I am not sure if it is something I did wrong, I am guessing it is. If you have any advice about them to make them better, it would be appreciated. The flavor was great, the texture all wrong, so again I think it was me.
I found these to be way to sweet, and so did everyone I served them to...Maybe I will try again, using less sugar??
they are splendid mints
I really liked these, but a few folks I offered them to weren't so keen. I decided to use green food coloring to tint the mints, and I used the back of a slotted spoon to press the indentations on them. I had a bit of trouble mixing in all the powdered sugar, so I kneaded it with my hands until it was smooth. Next time, I might try flattening them so they're quite thin, and dipping them in dark chocolate.
