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.
