Had sooooo much fun making these and they were so good and easy too. Made them pink and piped out of a ziploc bag into circles. Making green ones for St. Patrick's Day! TY Heather!
Like Toni, I found this very stiff and difficult to pipe. I added an extra 2 Tbsps of butter and tsp of cream to get to be workable. But, love the flavor and melt-in-your-mouth creaminess.
Still not sure if this is a recipe problem or user error but my candy was far too stiff to pipe into stars. I've made little pillows instead. Even added and extra teaspoon of cream to try and make it a more workable consistency. Next time I'll try it with 1/4 to 1/2 cup less sugar. As for taste, they are wonderful. The mint does not overpower the candy or the buttery flavor. And the creaminess is also lovely.
