Homemade Butter Mints {A Tutorial}

These refreshing homemade butter mints are fantastic anytime. Though we typically eat them after dinner to help digest our food and let us get good sleep. They will also freshen your breath, and that’s always a plus in my book. Cause, I mean, come on. Who likes garlic breath??? Um, no one!


Homemade butter mints are unbelievably easy to make and because I’m nice I have a little tutorial for y’all today!

Lets get started!

butter and oil mixture

Just start by mixing your softened butter with the oil. Mix it until it’s well incorporated.

step 2

Then add the powdered sugar a tablespoon at a time mixing well after each addition.

step 3

It should look crumbly, and smell fabulous!

step 4

Switch to the dough hook and knead until it comes together in a ball.

step 6

Cut into eight sections and roll into logs about 3/4 to 1 inch depending on how big you want them.

step 7

Mmmmm! It’s really hard to wait to eat this stuff!

step 8

Lastly, chop and dry these beauties. I know its hard…but you must wait a few hours before digging in. So if you want to make a large batch, then you don’t have to make it as often. Not that it’s hard. Haha. 🙂


Here’s the recipe:
