Expert Tips

If you don’t have a food processor, you can mix the dough with an electric mixer or by hand with a wooden spoon.

Store the mints in the refrigerator, or freeze in a freezer container for 2 to 3 months.

Try different extracts for different flavored mints…leave them white, or tint with green food color or the color of your choice.
