  • add   In top of double boiler melt
  • add   4TBSP of butter and 1/3 c Cream De Menth.
  • add   Add 1 pkg (15.4 oz) white creamy frosting mix
  • add   stir and cool until smooth and glossy about 5 min.
  • add   Optional:
  • add   Food color - 2 drops of green or red...for a light green or pink mint
  • add   Optional: crushed candy canes into fine little bits and stir into batter for a crunch in your mints

Instructions

  1. I spread this batter on a parchment topped jelly roll pan. Then let sit for a couple of minutes to start to cool and I run a pizza cutter over them to cut them into squares. I like the extra crunch the crushed candy cane pieces give them.
  2. You can also drop from teaspoon into small drops and push down with the back of fork for individual round mints. Be sure to drop them onto wax paper and let cool and harden.
  3. If mixture thickens add a few drops of warm water and cook a few seconds. Cool till firm. Makes about 5 doz - store in a lock tupperware type of container.
  4. We would always divide the dough and use red drops for Pink mints...and green drops for the lite green mints...pretty and they melt in your mouth good.

My niece, Shelley, often brings me a box of these mints from Johnson Candy and it always brings back memories of all the girls that have had these served at their bridal and then baby showers through the years...fun to have traditions.
