Large bowl

This is a no-cook recipe the children can mix with their hands. Flavor it with any of liquid flavorings in the supermarket, such as strawberry and lemon. If you want, you can instead divide it into three portions and add a few drops of food coloring to tint it yellow, red, and green. Then knead a small amount of flavoring into each one. This recipe makes about 1 1/2 lbs of candy. Help the children measure all the ingredients into the large bowl. They can take turns stirring it with the wooden spoon until it becomes too stiff. Then they can knead it with their hands. They should continue kneading until the dough is smooth. Roll into balls or use a fork to make a design Leave the mints on the plates and refrigerate them for 30 minutes, until they become firm. The mints taste even better the second day. Cover with plastic wrap and keep them in the refrigerator.
