Place sugar side down onto cavity of mold, pressing from edge of mold to center. Unmold at once onto waxed paper. To make chocolate mints add 3 tsp. cocoa and 1/2 tsp vanilla.

These have been made for graduations, weddings and other parties. It's nice you can make them ahead of time and they freeze well too. Also, you can color coordinate with your theme. We use a rose and leaf mold, made by Wilton.
