I love cream cheese mints!
Cream Cheese Mint Recipe
4 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
1 pound (16 ounces) powdered sugar
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!
