Does anyone have a good and easy recipe for cream cheese mints? I want to try to make some this weekend for my nephew's baptism.
This is the one I use:
CREAM CHEESE MINTS
o Combine in large bowl:
o 1 lb. Confectioners' sugar
o 3 oz Cream cheese; softened
o Desired food coloring
o Oil of peppermint or other desired flavoring
o Yellow mint mold
o Granulated sugar for dipping candies
Mix with fork until blended. Remove from bowl and knead until mixture is well blended.
TO MOLD: Shape a marble-sized piece into a ball, press into granulated sugar, taking care NOT to coat back. Press firmly into the yellow-flexible mint mold. Immediately unmold. You can unmold these directly onto a pretty serving dish or tray and, not being coated on the bottom, they will remain in place.
NOTE: If mixture sticks to the mold, add slightly more confectioners' sugar. Let set uncovered, for a few hours, for desired firmness. Wrap tray in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

THANK YOU LADIES!!!!!
I'm going to try to go to the grocery tomorrow (payday) and get everything!!
Just a side note - unless you specifically want cream cheese, you can use butter instead and not have to use granulated sugar or sprinkles.
awesome - thanks sweetjane!
