Cream Cheese Mints

Posted by Lori:

When I took a group of ladies' on an outing to Edmond, OK, last week, the conversation turned to these yummy, sweet treats.  These Cream Cheese Mints are great for graduations, showers, weddings, and much more.  They can be specially made to match the color and shape of your party occasion, so are a perfect addition to any table.  This is my friend, Teresa's, recipe!

Cream Cheese Mints

3 ounces cream cheese
food coloring
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
granulated sugar

Combine cream cheese, food coloring and flavoring (if desired).  Work in powdered sugar, first with spoon and then with hands to form dough like mixture.  Roll in granulated sugar.  Press into molds and release.  Let mints form a crust; store in covered container.  Yield: 30-50.

*For larger batches, use 8 ounces cream cheese and approx. 2 3/4 pounds of powdered sugar.  Mix with electric mixer until mixture becomes too hard to handle.  Remove from mixer and continue to mix with hands.
