Wedding or Baby Shower Cream Cheese Mints


Servings: Makes 2 1/2 pounds of mints (count will vary on the molds you use)

Prep Time: 1 1/2 hours


For the Mints Proper

  • 2 lbs powdered sugar
  • 8 oz cream cheese (That's usually one standard package.)
  • 1 tsp mint extract (Almond, peppermint, or orange works too.)
  • food color gel As Needed.
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar (Give or take.)
  • Special Equipment

  • Flexible candy/mint molds

  • Instructions:

    With your [clean] mitts or in a stand mixer, work the powdered sugar into the cream cheese. As it begins to come together, add the flavor extract. Continue to mix until integrated, and if you're going for different colors, portion out the mint mix and cover it to keep it all from drying out. To each portion add the food color gel, adjusting the color with more gel as needed. Once it all comes together, portion the mint mix into balls large enough to completely fill your mold. Roll 'em in the granulated sugar, press into the molds, them pop 'em out onto a silpat or parchment lined cookie sheet. Let rest in a cool, dry place for eight hours, flip, and let the mints air out for another eight. Move to an air-tight container until ready to use (they'll keep for at least a week), or may be kept frozen for a good long time until needed. If freezing, then make sure the mints are thawed on a wire rack so as to keep any moisture from getting at 'em.


    Prep time doesn't include the significant time that these have to rest to stiffen up and dry out. Also, even though the mint mix itself comes together quick, you'll have some significant time in shaping these mints out. Grab a friend to help if you can.
