I have two weddings coming up. I am trying to save money by making mints ahead of time. Do you have an easy recipe for mints that I can put into molds, with different colors, flavors and shapes thanks!

"Mint swirl candies" are perfect for molding, and if you start with white Candy Melts, you can color the mints any color you want using candy colors. These can be made several weeks in advance – just keep them in an airtight container in a cool place away from sunlight.
