Young Living Vitality essential oil*
(*You can substitute with a few drops of your favorite extract or flavoring. I used peppermint, cinnamon & spearmint for separate batches)
Watkins caramel extract
Whisk together softened butter with powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until fully incorporated.
Add milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it forms a nice soft dough ball that you can easily form with your hands.
Divide dough into 4 equal sections.
Add 1-2 drops essential oil along with 1-2 drops of food coloring to each section
Roll and squeeze the dough thoroughly to incorporate the flavoring and evenly distribute colors, or leave it mottled for the "peppermint" color
Roll out into a "snake" and cut into ½" pieces to resemble a butter mint.
