Cream Cheese Mint Recipe

How To Make Cream Cheese Mints

Cream Cheese Mint Recipe

4 oz cream cheese (room temperature)

1 pound (16 ounces) powdered sugar

1/8 – 1/4 tsp. oil of peppermint (or other flavoring)

gel food coloring

granulated sugar

flexible rubber mint molds

Mix together cream cheese, flavoring, powdered sugar.  Start with an 1/8 teaspoon of flavoring and then add more to desired taste. I love cheesecake flavoring!  Knead (I use a food processor). Mixture will form a stiff dough.

Add gel paste coloring to color the dough. I used one drop. If dough becomes sticky add in a bit more powered sugar while kneading in coloring.

Roll into tiny balls (make a test to determine size of ball — each mold is a little different). Coat balls with granulated sugar.

Press ball into mold.

Immediately flip mold over and release mint. Repeat over and over.

Makes about 5 dozen mints depending on size of mold.

Mints freeze beautifully!
