These are so creamy and buttery, and very colorful and pretty on a Christmas tray, too!

How to Make No-Cook Butter Mint Patties


  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.
