1. Wash hands. In a bowl, mix together with a fork 1 T. softened butter (do not use margarine), 1 T. light corn syrup, 1/8 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. mint extract. Gradually add 1 cup powdered sugar. When dough becomes too stiff, knead with hands.
2. Make 12 snowmen with 3/4 dough by forming 2 or 3 marble-size balls for each one. Stack balls on wax paper to make bodies. Divide rest of dough in half. Knead 1 drop blue food coloring into one half. Wash hands. Knead 1 drop red and 2 drops yellow food coloring into the other half.
3. Wash hands. For each snowman, press on candy sprinkles for mouth, eyes, and buttons. Form a scarf, hat, earmuffs, and nose out of colored dough. Press features in place. Store in refrigerator.
