5 dozen candies
15 Min

With drops of food coloring and peppermint extract, these Kissable Butter Mints are as cute as they are tasty. Serve up a big platter of these holiday-inspired treats tonight.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (16-ounce) box confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2 drops red food color

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, with an electric beater on medium speed, beat sugar and butter for 2 to 3 minutes, until creamy. Add cream, peppermint extract, and food color; beat for 3 to 4 minutes, until well blended.
  2. Roll mixture into 1/2-inch balls. Using your thumb, lightly push down the center of each ball to form a wafer; place on a wire rack and allow to dry overnight, uncovered.
  3. Serve, or transfer to an airtight container until ready to serve.

@gbequett - 4 cups of powdered sugar = 16 oz box

How many cups of confectioners' sugar are in a 16 oz. box? Thanks
