Mouthwatering mints that are very simple to make and don't require a lot of time.

These mints are great! But of course it all depends on what sort of extract you use. They're basically butter mints. I melted the butter, then added the extract, then added some of the powdered sugar and some water, and from there treated it like making pie crust (make it into a coarse crumb mixture that is somewhat dry, then press together). Then I put the finished mint in a bowl of powdered sugar to help the outside dry out.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups powdered sugar (more or less depending on amount making)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (more or less)
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract (usually mint is better) or 1 teaspoon peppermint extract (usually mint is better)
  • water (very little if needed)


  1. Melt butter.
  2. Place powder sugar in bowl along with flavoring and melted butter.
  3. Knead with hands until mixture is in a solid non-sticky dough mixture.
  4. If powder sugar is left in bowl, add very little water to mix in mixture.
  5. Shape and enjoy.
