Ingredients
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperaure
  • 2 lb. powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • food coloring
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, use your clean hands to knead the cream cheese and powdered sugar together until no longer sticky.  

  2. Add peppermint extract, and food coloring if a different color mint is desired. Knead thoroughly to mix peppermint flavoring uniformly.

  3. Form into small balls, approximately the size of a grape.  You may need to work the dough together with your hands a bit as you are forming the balls.

  4. Use a clean button (or a variety) to press down the dough ball.

  5. Let the mints sit out to dry overnight (at least 8 hours).

  6. Store for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator, or store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months.
