Old Fashioned Butter Mints

This is a fun easy candy to make with kids when you're not ready to make dipped chocolates like Kim or toffee like mom. 

1/4 cup butter
1/8 t salt
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 t peppermint extract (I wanted more peppermint flavor, so I will add more in the future)
3 1/4 cup powdered sugar
food coloring if you want

Directions: Whip butter in mixer for a minute. Add sweetened condensed milk and peppermint. Mix til combined. 

Add powdered sugar

If dough seems wet, add a little more sugar until dough combines and balls up in your mixer. 

Roll out snakes and cut into little bites. Store in airtight container in fridge. 

Unless you are making these to give away to friends, don't double the recipe. I did and it is too much. :)
