Cream Cheese Mints


  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 lbs powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tsp mint extract
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract


  • Combine butter and cream cheese in a large mixing bowl and mix together until well combined and smooth.
  • Add mint and vanilla and mix well.
  • Gradually add the powdered sugar, and check for consistency of stickiness.
  • Separate the dough into bowls for however many colors you're using and add the color and stir until desired color is achieved.
  • Roll into 1" balls and roll into powdered sugar.
  • Place on a baking sheet that's lined with parchment paper and dip a fork into powdered sugar and flatten the balls using the fork.
  • Allow to sit out and dry or place baking sheets in refrigerator to dry out before storing in an airtight container. At this point I flash freeze them and then store in a freezer safe bag so they don't stick together.
