Add your choice of food coloring and flavoring. If desired, you may divide the whole batch to make 2 or 3 color choices, adding extract to taste. Roll in 1-inch balls. Place on a sheet of waxed paper. Press with fork or stamp with decorative cookie stamp. Let stand, uncovered, about 4 hours or until mints are firm and outside is dry, but inside is still moist and creamy.
