“This is the alternative form of another recipe posted on here. It is the creation of necessity. I had to make these wonderful mints that my great aunt made for my sister's wedding for my own in England. Because I couldn't find frosting sold like it is in the US, I played around to get this equally wonderful recipe. It can be made to any flavor or color. Just use your imagination and there are the candies of your dreams... melting in your mouth.”
