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.

Just a side note - unless you specifically want cream cheese, you can use butter instead and not have to use granulated sugar or sprinkles.
