Robyn's notes for this recipe:
I like to make these at Christmas time, but you can use this for weddings or any other occasion. You can also make them any color you like and any shape you like. You will need a plastic or rubber candy mold to make these.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, mint flavoring and food coloring (a small drop at a time until you reach desired color) and knead until creamy and smooth.

Roll into tiny balls, roll in granulated sugar and press into rubber or plastic candy molds.

Immediately remove from mold and place on wax paper and allow to dry.
Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place. Candy will keep for a couple of months.

Hi, Robyn! I love this recipe. I have shared catering with my Mom! We have done many receptions, business settings/luncheons, wedding receptions, birthday celebrations, etc. There is a multitude of flavorings and colors as well! My Son enjoys helping us, and has learned many tricks along the way. As he goes on, he will learn many of the tips/tricks as we go along. We can make baskets for our Easter &/or Christmas Celebrations. He has always enjoyed going with us looking for new candy molds. These 'Mints' will mold well for a lot of 'mint messages'!
