Easy Cream Cheese Mints
Prep Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr
Easy cream cheese mints make the perfect Valentines Day treat!
4 ounces softened cream cheese
4 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
food coloring (optional)
1-2 tablespoons milk (optional)
Add your softened cream cheese to stand mixer (you can also use a hand mixer). Mix for 1 minute, then add your confectioners sugar, one cup at a time, letting each addition incorporate before adding another.
You want your mixture firm, but moist. If your mixture is too hard, add a tablespoon of milk and mix in. If your mixture is too moist, add more powdered sugar.
Add your extract, then, if you're making more than one color, divide into bowls. Add food coloring and mix in.
Refrigerate mixture for about an hour, as mixture will be sticky!
Form balls and place on parchment covered sheet pans. Flatten and decorate. Refrigerate until firm. Store in refrigerator in airtight container.
