Party Mints

These are great for showers and weddings. I made these for my mother’s 90th birthday party.party mints

 

2  1/2 cups powdered sugar

3 oz. cream cheese

1/4  to  1/2 teaspoon mint or peppermint or almond extract, to taste.

Few drops of food coloring.

 

Mix well.

Press into candy molds or drop tiny amounts off a teaspoon, as I did in the photo. Another way is to form tiny balls and press your thumb into the centers or flatten balls with tines of a fork dipped in powdered sugar. May add a little more powdered sugar to make mixture easier to work with.  Mints should be about the size of a quarter.

 

Air dry, uncovered, overnight at room temperature.

Store in airtight container.
