Creamy Mints

1 pound box 10x sugar (4 cups)
1/4 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons boiling water or more
1/4 teaspoon peppermint oil or any other flavor desired
food coloring
granulated sugar

Combine ingredients adding flavoring last. Cream well with hands
until consistency of pie dough. If too sticky, add a little extra
10x sugar. Chill about 15 minutes. Roll into small balls. I used
candy molds to shape the mints. Roll the balls in granulated sugar
then press into the candy mold-sprinkle the back of the candy with
some more granulated sugar the release the candy from the mold onto
waxed paper.

For chocolate candies-flavor with 2 TBS. cocoa and 1 tsp. vanilla

Allow candy to sit out uncovered to harden about 8 hours. These
freeze well. Makes about 80 candies. I used small rubber candy
molds like snowmen, Christmas trees etc. for the holidays. You
can make any shape for any occasion, these are pretty and tasty.
