Wedding Butter Mints

We are making these by the millions in a pretty peach shade for my sister's wedding next Saturday. They are so good we can hardly keep our hands off them.

1 lb powdered sugar
1/4 c. butter
1/3 c. light corn syrup
1 tsp peppermint extract
1/2 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients together. Add 4 drops of your choice of food coloring. Knead with more powdered sugar if needed. (Knead if needed- ha-ha that just made me smile). Divide into balls- about 3" & roll out into ropes/snakes on a surface dusted with powdered sugar. Cut every 1/4" into small pieces & place on a tray with powdered sugar. Try to keep them from touching until they are slightly dried to prevent sticking. Let them air dry for 8-24 hours. They are much softer than the store bought mints, but I think much tastier. Super easy to make, too...
