How To Make Cream Cheese Holiday Mints
These little mints are sweet and melt in your mouth. Perfect for baby showers, birthdays and Christmas!
1
Add 8 ounces room temperature cream cheese and 2 tablespoons softened butter to a bowl or mixer and beat until smooth. About 1 minute.
2
Add 7 cups sifted powdered sugar (to get out the lumps!) And mix on low speed until smooth. About 3 minutes.
3
Add peppermint extract to taste. I used about a teaspoon. You could also use orange or vanilla extract too! Mix again to combine.
4
Your mixture should be firm enough to hold its shape. It's basically cream cheese frosting!
5
Divide the mixture between bowls and tint as many colors as you want. I use natural colors. Try to use a thick gel color so you don't thin your mix.
6
Transfer to a piping bag with a star tip or a ziploc bag with the corner snipped off and pipe bite size swirls on a parchment lined baking sheet.
7
Air dry in a cool spot 1 to 2 days until firm enough to handle. Store in the fridge in an air tight container up to 2 weeks.
