Not really sure where this recipe originated from, but its been in the family for quite some time, I had these at my High School Graduation, as well as my wedding, I love the taste and they freeze well too, so you can have mints all the time, also, you can make them for any occasion, baby showers, Christmas, even Easter! This is really time consuming, but its totally worth it, so get 2-3 of your closest friends and get cracking on all those mints !!! The great thing about making your own mints is that you can get the color and shape of your party colors and theme. Enjoy!

    This is where you find out who your real friends are! :p Roll a ball of mint and dip in sugar, place in the center of the mold and press, pop out mints and place on wax paper to dry, 4-5 days, (flip everyday to dry faster)
