Candy Buttons

This is the first treat from Jack's party I want to share with you guys. This is by FAR the easiest thing you will ever make! They tasted like the real thing, and you can make them in any color you like.

3 cups confectioners' sugar
2 egg whites
White Paper (I used computer paper)
Food coloring

1. Cut white paper into twenty four 2-by-11-inch strips. Using a mixer, beat the confectioners’ sugar and egg white until thick and smooth, about 5 minutes. Divide the icing into small bowls. Stir the food coloring into your bowls, covering any colors you aren't using first with plastic wrap.

2. Lay the paper strips side by side on a work surface. Pipe out the icing onto the paper strips in dots, about 1/3 inch apart in even rows. (If you don't have a decorators bag and tip, just use a plastic baggie and cut off a small part of the corner.)

3. Let the dots sit at room temperature until hardened, 12 hours or overnight.
