Cream Cheese Mints

Cream Cheese Mints
Recipe type: dessert
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10 Dozen
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ to 1 tsp. peppermint oil (depending on how strong of a peppermint taste you want)
  • Add any color food (optional)
  • 2 lbs. powdered confectioners' sugar
  1. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and confectioner's sugar until fully blended. Mix in peppermint oil. Color as desired with food coloring or leave white.
  2. Roll mixture into small balls, and place on waxed paper. Flatten with a fork dipped in confectioners' sugar. Let dry for about 2 hours on waxed paper, then freeze or refrigerate.
I find it easier just to mix it by hand. Knead it like you would bread. Will keep in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks. I got this recipe from my aunt who loves Christmas as much as I do. She would prepare these every year to serve on Christmas Eve. It brings back very fond memories of growing up and spending Christmas Eve at my aunt and uncle's house.
