This week I am making some buttermints. Buttermints are my favorite type of mint, but for some reason you can only find them at weddings and around Easter.
I decided to make my own, since I was getting tired of store bought edibles.
For this recipe you will need:
1 stick CannaButter
4 cups of Powdered Sugar
2 tps of Mint Extract
May need an additional 2-4 tbs of water to help it knead together.
Using a Stand Mixer
Place your butter and mint extract into dish and whip together. Slowly add sugar and allow to knead together. You may need to add a little extra of water, but it should look like a dough ball.
Whisk the softened butter and extract together, slowly fold in sugar in a bowl. Once it is a crumbly texture you can place on counter top and begin kneading the dough together.
Once the dough is sticking together, split into 4 equal size portions. You can place the dough in a mold, or just roll and cut them. You can keep all sizes equal or make bigger and smaller mints depending on your dosing.
Allow the buttermints to sit out overnight to dry, or place in a dehydrator at 320F for 4 hours.
