How to make cream cheese mints

Cream cheese mints are traditionally served at weddings.  They are so delicious why wait for a wedding. These creamy mints are a great addition to any party menu.  I even have a super yummy chocolate cream cheese mint recipe. I usually allow 2 1/2 mints per person.  Some will take two and a few people might take three and some won’t eat any.  People will usually take one of each design, so I don’t ever make more than three designs for a party. Also, it is a good idea to be consistent. For instance, make a shape the same color and flavor. This won’t confuse guest if they come back for seconds. They will know all green leaves are mint flavored etc.

How to make cream cheese mints

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.
