Serves:

72 patties

Prep:

20 Min

Ingredients

1/3 c
light karo syrup
1/4 c
softened butter
1 tsp
peppermint extract
1/2 tsp
salt
1 lb
sifted powdered sugar (a full box)
red and green food coloring

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Blend corn syrup, butter, extract, & salt. Combine well until smooth and creamy texture.
2
Add powdered sugar; mix or knead until smooth.
3
Divide into thirds. Knead food coloring into two of the mounds, leaving the third one white (I have actually used yellow in the third one, cuz I didn't like the 'bland' white...)
4
Shape into small 1/2" balls. Flatten on waxed paper with a fork that has been dipped into powdered sugar.
5
Let the candies dry. Makes approximately 72 patties.
