DIY for kids "Easter Mints" #recipe

Get ready for easter we have what you needDIY for kids "Easter Mints"

Ingredients:

1/3 c Soft butter

1/3 c Light corn syrup

1/2 tsp. Salt

1tsp Flavoring (your choice)

31/2 c ( 1 lb) sifted confectioner's sugar

Large bowl

Wooden spoon

Paper plates

Pencils



Preparation:
This is a no-cook recipe the children can mix with their hands. Flavor it with any of the liquid flavorings in the supermarket, such as strawberry and lemon. If you want, you can instead divide it into three portions and add a few drops of food coloring to tint it yellow, red, and green. Add a small amount of flavoring into each one. This recipe makes about 1 1/2 lbs of candy.
 
 
Help the children measure all the ingredients into the large bowl. They can take turns stirring it with the wooden spoon until it becomes too stiff. Then they can knead it with their hands. They should continue kneading until the dough is smooth.
 
 
Give each child a paper plate and a pencil. Tell them to turn their plates OVER and write their names on the Bottom to prevent pencil lead from getting on their mints. Help them hold their pencils correctly. Make sure they use upper and lower case letters.
 
 
Give each child a portion of dough on his or her plate. The children can pinch off pieces, roll them into balls, and press them lightly with a fork to make a fancy butter mint. Children who cannot roll the candy into balls can make snakes, cut the snakes into pieces, and press the pieces with a fork. They might eat the pieces with the fork, but that's OK too. Leave the mints on the plates and refrigerate them for 30 minutes, until they become firm. Easter Mints taste even better the second day, if you can keep everyone from eating them all on the first day.Cover with plastic wrap and keep them in the refrigerator.
