  1. The dogh never got hard enough for balls
  2. I love this recipe! I've made it twice with no problem. Everyone loved them. I followed the recipe exactly. Make sure you chill them for an hour, as you are forming the patties your hands are warm and they get a little soft. Just put them back in the fridge for a little and start - Read more ...
  3. So I was nervous about making this recipe after reading reviews but it's the only mint one I could find so I went for it. I did 2 C. pwd sugar 1/3 c. margarine 1 TBS corn syrup(or a tad more) and a couple drops peppermint. It has turned out thick and yummy so far - Read more ...
  4. very soupy. after reading other reviews I was prepared to add lots of powdered sugar. Even after 3 extra cups of powdered sugar it was still not the right texture. It was entirely too grainy. I do NOT recommend this recipe!
  5. The mesurements on this recipe is just not right. I wish I had read he review before I made it. it was just like soup & I added 1 1/2 to 2 more cups of conf. sugar & still not solid enough.
  6. This did not turn out at all. I did everything exactly as instructed but even after refrigerating over 24 hours these still were runny. I added three more cups powdered sugar and they still won't firm up enough to do anything with. I'm afraid I will have to throw the entire thing away.
  7. I love these mints. If the patties don't thicken don't give up just keep adding powdered sugar and kneading. You won't be disappointed
  8. This was quite a disaster. I was looking for a good mint patty recipe with a firm filling however even after FREEZING the mint filling it was not firm enough to form a ball or a patty for that matter. So because I did not want to waste all of the expensive ingredients I dropped - Read more ...
  9. The mint center filling didn't thicken enough to make patties so I spread the mixture on a cookie sheet and poored melted chocolate on top and then cut them up.
