Minty Snowmen Recipe

Publisher Photo
Each year I choose a different decorating theme for my holiday kickoff party - last time it was snowmen and snowflakes. These cute little snowman mints were fun to make and drew lots of smiles. -Shelly Rynearson, Oconomowoc, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2013

We made these one year - my advice is - if you want more than the recipe will make, do it one batch at a time. When you increase the amounts, it becomes harder to work with. These are very tasty. We had a lot of fun doing these 11 years ago when our daughters were younger, now I get to do them with my grandsons.

We made these for our "snow man party" and they were darling! We no longer use artificial food dyes, so if we do these again, we will have to do things a little differently. They are very tasty too. :)
