Give your loved ones the gift of happy memories when you present them with homemade buttermints that you lovingly made yourself.
Pop a buttermint in your mouth, and you may be transported back in time. I can remember sitting in my Grandma’s living room, practically devouring the little dish of mints when no one was looking.
Imagine how delighted a loved one would be to receive a gift of buttermints that you made yourself!
5 Boys Baker has lots of experience with this recipe and walks us through the steps and tips to the perfect batch of mints. Hint: She strongly suggests recruiting a helper as several hands will be needed for the stretching and cutting part of the process. Willy Wonka would be so proud!
