Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/3 c Soft butter
1/3 c Light corn syrup
1/2 ts Salt
1 t Flavoring
3 1/2 c ( 1 lb ) sifted
-confectioner sugar
Large bowl
Wooden spoon
Paper plates

This is a no-cook recipe the children can mix with their hands. Flavor it w
ith any of the liquid flavorings in the supermarket, such as strawberry and l
emon. If you want, you can instead divide it into three portions and add a fe
w drops of food coloring to tint it yellow, red, and green. The knead a small
amount of flavoring into each one. This recipe makes about 1 1/2 lbs of cand
y. Help the children measure all the ingredients into the large bowl. Th
ey can take turns stirring it with the wooden spoon until it becomes too stif
f. Then they can knead it with their hands. They should continue kneading unt
il the dough is smooth. Give each child a paper plate and a pencil. Tell t
hem to turn their plates OVER and write their names on the Bottom to prevent
pencil lead from getting on their mints. Help them hold their pencils corre
ctly. Make sure they use upper and lower case letters. Give each child a p
ortion of dough on his or her plate. The ch!
en can pinch off pieces, roll them into balls, and press them lightly with
a fork to make a fancy butter mint. Children who cannot roll the candy into b
alls can make snakes, cut the snakes into pieces, and press the pieces with a
fork. They might eat the pieces with the fork, but that's ok too. Leave
the mints on the plates and refrigerate them for 30 minutes, until they beco
me firm. Easter Mints taste even better the second day, if you can keep every
one from eating them all on the first day. Cover with plastic wrap and keep t
hem in the refrigerator. Re-Posted by Lois Flack, CYBEREALM-KOOKNET,(315)786-
