As promised, here's what we made for the Sunday school teachers, butter mints! The kids made most of the mints. They had a lot of fun picking out the mint shapes which was probably their favorite part. Well, that and eating the candy.
We used our old advent calendars as the candy molds.
We used Cindy's butter mint recipe on Skip To My Lou. I did have to double the powdered sugar to get it to a dough like consistency.
I found these adorable printable gift tags over at Orange You Lucky! by Helen Dardik. I erased the "to & from" part and added my own message. I also printed them on sticker paper to make it easier to attach the tags to the containers. And of course, I snuck in a little Japanese masking tape in the wrapping. I don't know why, but I can't get enough of that tape. Sometimes I wonder how I ever lived without it!
