Why I Love This Recipe

Who doesn't like those buttermints you get at restaurants? Making them at home is so easy you'll wonder why you haven't tried this!


Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup unsalted butter cold and cut into 1 inch pieces

4 cups confectioners’ sugar

1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

2 tablespoons whole milk

food coloring optional


Directions

Beat chilled and diced butter with a hand mixer or a stand mixer on low until creamy and smooth


Add confectioners’ sugar 1 cup at a time scraping the sides of the bowl as needed


Increasing speed to medium-high mix sugar and butter until thoroughly combined. The consistency will be like grated Parmesan cheese.


Add the 2 tablespoons of milk


Add the 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract


Continue to beat until smooth


Consistency should be like thick frosting


Make dough into a ball, several balls if adding food coloring


Add the food coloring. I used a powder dye and sprinkled about 1/4 teaspoon into the dough ball


Knead the dye in with your hands


Cover dough balls with plastic wrap while working to prevent them from drying out.


Dust a flat surface with confectioners’ sugar


Make smaller balls golfball sized and roll into logs, straw-like shaped


Using a knife or pizza cutter cut pieces off the log


When finished cutting lay in a single layer on a paper towel lined cookie sheet or plate


Dust the tops of the candies with confectioners’ sugar


Allow to air dry at room temperature for about 12 hours


When candies are firm store in an airtight container
