Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a huge hit at our church Christmas party! This was a huge hit at our church Christmas party! Everyone loved them! I left the dough white and just cut the log into thin slices and then dipped each side into red and green decorators sugars. They were so easy! I also doubled the peppermint extract. They were delicious, and the added crunch of the sugar was very nice!! I am about to make another batch for our family Christmas get together.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from These were somewhat yummy. These were somewhat yummy. WARNING: IF YOU ARE EXPECTING TO MAKE HARD PEPPERMINT CANDIES THAT YOU CAN SUCK ON, THESE WILL NOT HARDEN. Although they were soft, they were good, i brought them into school to give to my friends and everyone loved them. That made me happy but i was still disappointed that they were not hard candy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this recipe! I love this recipe! It is very easy to make. I let the mints dry out a little before storing. I didn’t decorate them just left a few plain and coated the rest in chocolate. I wrapped them in colorful saran wrap, placed a name tag on it and put them on everyone’s plates. Great after dinner mints!

I have already received requests for this holiday season. They are a must in our home! Great for holiday get togethers. If you leave them on a plate and let them dry out they will get crunchy on the edges.

I could not get it to harden up enough not to keep it in the refrigerator, so I was unable to serve it at my holiday party because it was too soft. I loved the taste and ended up eating them myself, one at a time from the refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this recipe. I loved this recipe. A friend and I make them for weddings and parties a lot. They have molds you can use to make different decorations on them. This recipe is also good if you substitue the peppermint with almond or mint.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I tried using a mint mold. I tried using a mint mold. It didn't work. Next time I'll make sure to roll the mint in more sugar so it doesn't stick to the mold. I just left it in the bowl and everyone liked it. Tasty homemade mints.
