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

72 patties
20 Min


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


1Blend corn syrup, butter, extract, & salt. Combine well until smooth and creamy texture.
2Add powdered sugar; mix or knead until smooth.
3Divide 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...)
4Shape into small 1/2" balls. Flatten on waxed paper with a fork that has been dipped into powdered sugar.
5Let the candies dry. Makes approximately 72 patties.
