½ cup butter unsalted, softened ▢1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream ▢1 pinch salt ▢5-6 drops peppermint oil ▢3¾ cups powdered sugar ▢2-3 drops food coloring, optional
In a KitchenAid, cream, butter, salt, peppermint oil, and a quarter cup of powdered sugar should be beaten until extremely smooth and velvety.
Gradually incorporate the remaining powdered sugar while frequently scrubbing the bowl's sides. Color the cuisine if desired. Beat for two to four minutes, or until airy and smooth.
Place the entire mixture in a mound form and securely seal it in plastic wrap. Relax for a minimum of one hour.
Divide the mixture into five to six portions when it becomes sufficiently rigid to handle. For the purpose of creating mints, liberally distribute powdered sugar over your counter.
Cut each rope into tiny pillow-shaped pieces, each measuring approximately ½" in length, using a dough scraper. Stack each mint on a waxed paper-lined cookie tray.
