    Scatter a little corn starch on a flat wax paper covered surface and roll the mints out to about 1/8 inch thick. Use top of empty medicine bottle and cut circles out of mints. Re role the Mints between the circles till all is used up. Method 2 is roll the mint into 1/2 inch logs and cut across the log 1/2 inch lengths to make mint pillows. Then allow to dry 1-4 days.

    Set mint circles aside to dry. Drying may take 1-4 days. Or you may begin to decorate with butter cream frosting and then allow to dry.. Mints will dry to a hard melt in your mouth texture.
