Christmas Minty Snowmen Recipe
These cute little snowman mints are fun to make and will draw lots of smiles

Prep Time: 30 Min

* 1 tablespoon butter, softened
* 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
* 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup confectioners' sugar
* Red, green, blue, yellow and/or purple liquid or gel food coloring
* Colored sprinkles, nonpareils and cake decorator candies

In a small bowl, combine the butter, corn syrup, extract and salt. Gradually stir in confectioners' sugar. Knead by hand for 1-2 minutes or until mixture becomes pliable.

For each color of dough, combine 1 tablespoon of dough and food coloring; knead until blended. Leave remaining dough white. Roll white dough into a log; remove one-fourth of the log and set aside.

For the snowmen's bodies, divide the remaining log into 8-9 pieces and roll into balls. For the snowmen's heads, divide the reserved dough into 8-9 pieces and roll into balls. Stack 1 smaller ball on top of each larger ball.

Use the colored dough to form hats, scarves and earmuffs as desired. Use candies to make eyes, noses and buttons.
