How to Make No-Cook Butter Mint Patties


  • 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.
