Pumpkin Mints Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 3 1/2 cups confectionery sugar
  • 2-3 drops oil of peppermint

  2. Add in confectionery sugar and oil of peppermint, mixing thoroughly.
  3. Knead with your hands until smooth.
  4. Separate 1/6 of fondant, and use food coloring to make it green. Mix in well.
