Ingredients

  • 2 Sticks Unsalted Butter, Soften (225 g / 8 oz)
  • 4 Cups Powdered Sugar (450 g / 16 oz)

  • 36 Pepper Mint Candy (such as Starlight), Crushed* (200 g / 7 oz)
  • 1-2 TBS Milk

  1. Place the Pepper Mint candy in a food processor and process to get a powder.

  2. In a bowl of a standing mixer, beat butter on high until smooth.
