Why I Love This Recipe

This is a recipe I've made for over 20 years. It's refreshing in summer & festive in the winter. It works on cakes or cookies.

This frosting is white. Feel free to color red or green (for the “mint chocolate chip” effect).

Ingredients You'll Need

1/3 c evaporated milk
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1/4 tsp salt
4 1/2 c sifted confectioners’ sugar
1/4 c butter, softened
1/4 c crushed peppermint candy or chocolate chips (optional)
Food coloring (optional)


Blend milk, peppermint extract and salt.

Mix in powdered sugar

When mixture is smooth, fold in butter and mix well

Frost cake, Sprinkle with crushed candy or chocolate chips
