Aunt Marian's Cream Cheese Mints
These easy three-ingredient Cream Cheese Mints are the perfect compliment for any bridal or baby shower, wedding, or family gathering. The best part is that the only utensil needed is your hands.
- 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperaure
- 2 lb. powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
- food coloring
In a large mixing bowl, use your clean hands to knead the cream cheese and powdered sugar together until no longer sticky.
Add peppermint extract, and food coloring if a different color mint is desired. Knead thoroughly to mix peppermint flavoring uniformly.
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.
Use a clean button (or a variety) to press down the dough ball.
Let the mints sit out to dry overnight (at least 8 hours).
Store for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator, or store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months. Makes about 9 dozen.
