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.
- 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)
