“Mint Candy Wreaths,” Friend, Dec. 1998, 11
3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 teaspoon peppermint or wintergreen flavoring
green food coloring
tiny red cinnamon candies
Mix together well the first four ingredients; place the mixture in a resealable plastic bag.
Add a few drops of the green food coloring. Seal the bag, and knead the mixture. If it is not green enough, add more coloring, 2 drops at a time, kneading well each time.
Take a piece of the mixture about the size of a walnut and roll it into a cylinder about 4″ (10 cm) long.
Bend the cylinder into the wreath shape and press cinnamon candies around the top as holly berries. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the mixture is used up.
Place all the wreaths on a paper towel and cover them with another paper towel; let set overnight.
