Cream Cheese Mints
























So easy to make and so good! Use different food coloring to change them up for the holidays or leave them white!

Cream Cheese Mints

4 oz cream cheese, softened at room temperature
1 pound (16 ounces) powdered sugar
⅛ – ¼ teaspoon of mint, spearmint or peppermint extract
Food coloring of your choice (optional)

Using a hand mixer, soften the cream cheese until smooth.  Next add in the extract and food coloring if using, and continue to mix until light and fluffy. Slowly add in the powdered sugar a little at a time and mix until smooth.






















Scoop about a teaspoon and roll into balls.  Place balls on parchment paper and use a fork to flatten them.  Dip fork in powdered sugar to make sure it doesn't stick. 
Continue making balls until all the dough is used up. Let mints air dry and serve. 
Note:  You can make these any color or leave the food coloring out completely for a nice white winter mint.  I used 1 drop of food coloring to get this swirl effect.

    2. It is illegal to copy/paste from copyright-protected websites. If website owners allow copying, their content can be posted anywhere online without credit being given to them. This is a legal issue that protects that copyrights of websites. Using the Print Friendly button is not electronic copying and also automatically gives credit to the original owner. If you do not understand what illegal copying from websites means to website owners, I suggest you inform yourself. You are only showing how ignorant you are about how websites work. Just because it is posted online, doesn't mean it is yours for the taking. If you don't like the rules on this site, you are free to leave.

  3. Use orange flavoring for a great dream-cycle taste

  4. My mom and her friends used to make these for receptions and official visits of club state officers on the Rebekah's years ago. Each lady would make a 8 ounce bar of cream cheese in a different color and flavor. Ate many of these as a kid. Thanks for the recipe. I will bookmark it as I have no problem waiting to print as I use these a lot off of the computer.
