Easter Mints Kids Can Make


1/3 cup soft butter
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp flavoring
3 1/2 cup ( 1 lb ) sifted confectioner sugar
1 large bowl
1 wooden spoon
1 paper plates
1 pencils

This is a no-cook recipe the children can mix with their hands.
Flavor it with any of the liquid flavorings in the supermarket, such
as strawberry and lemon. If you want, you can instead divide it into
three portions and add a few 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 candy. Help the
children measure all the ingredients into the large bowl. They can
take turns stirring it with the wooden spoon until it becomes too
stiff. Then they can knead it with their hands. They should continue
kneading until the dough is smooth. Give each child a paper plate and
a pencil. Tell them 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 correctly. Make sure they use upper and
lower case letters. Give each child a portion of dough on his or her
plate. The children 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 balls 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 become firm.
Easter Mints taste even better the second day, if you can keep
everyone from eating them all on the first day.
