Cream cheese mints

Cream Cheese Mints

And finally, the last tasty entry from my family’s annual Iron Chef Throwdown competition… cream cheese mints.  My sister made these and I’m pretty sure my peppermint-loving kids voted for her.  Little traitors.

I like that you can make them any shape you want and the colors can match any occasion.  Dani said they were a breeze to make, and they were definitely a hit if how quickly they disappeared was any indication.

I’m posting this on Dani’s birthday to give her an extra shout-out.  Happy Birthday, Dan!  Love you!!

Recipe:  Cream Cheese Mints

3 ounces cream cheese – at room temperature
2 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
4-6 drops flavoring (Dani used peppermint.)
4-6 drops food coloring
granulated sugar, for rolling

Mix cream cheese and confectioners sugar together.  Start with 4 drops of flavoring, then carefully add more until you reach the desired taste.  Add food coloring drop by drop until you reach the color you like.  Knead until pie dough consistency is achieved.   Add sugar to make softer or decrease sugar for firmer consistency.  Take small pinch and roll into a ball in granulated sugar.  Press into candy mold, remove excess and unmold onto waxed paper.  Chill until ready to serve.
