Mints




These were so much fun to make! My daughter found this sea shell mold at Michael's. We thought it would be fun for mints at the wedding.



I've made mints for many weddings...including my own. They were all flowers and leaves so the shells were fun for a change. I think this mold was meant for pouring melted chocolate in, but it worked well for the mints too. I usually used a rubber mold so I wondered if this would work. The trick was to dip a piece of the mint mix in sugar then pat it into the mold. A few times I had to use a knife to get them out but most came out easily.





They taste great!
