Be A Kid In A Candy Store When You Make Homemade Buttermints

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!
