      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.

      I made this in a pinch for my sister in law's baby shower. The only thing was when I made them the mint flavor was too much. I had to double the recipe and omit the additional mint to get the flavor we liked. However, they were delicous and a hit. For the last few mints (about 25) I added some chocolate flavoring for mint choc. taste--they were yummy and so simple to make!!!!

      Just had to submit a 2nd review - I made these again using 1 teaspoon mint, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon butter extract, added a few drops red food coloring and used a teeny heart cookie cutter for Valentine's Day - THESE WERE FABULOUS!!!!
