Buttery Cream Cheese Mints Recipe

Weddings, baby showers, parties, teas and luncheons. What do these events have in common? They all need to have these mints on the table or in cute little packages for guests. They are beyond easy to make and require no cooking or baking.

Just place all of the ingredients into the mixer:

  • 6 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract
  • 1/4 cup of softened butter (about 1/2 hour on the counter or 8 seconds in the microwave should do it)
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese

 

Mix ingredients well and form one into a small ball. Coat in sugar.

Push the first mint ball you make into your candy mold. If too much, remove excess. When finished, roll back into a ball use as a size example to make the rest of the mints.

If you don’t have actual candy molds, you can use any small clean, food safe item that will work or just roll them into balls & coat with sugar.

Then you can make several at a time and coat them in sugar.

Ah… perfectly perfect.

Makes about 8 dozen marble-sized mints. If your event has a colorful theme, you can add a few drops of food coloring when mixing.

Simply loverly. And delicious – always the hit of the party.

  1. Can these mints be “piped” from a piping bag or is the mixture too thick? They look delish!

  2. Can we freeze these mints for a short period of time?

    How long do these need to dry before putting them in a container?

  4. Cheslie

    How long can they sit out?

    • Hi there Cheslie, I would say about a week but recommend wrapping them in plastic wrap to keep them soft after the outside starts to dry a bit. That way you will have a firm outter crust & soft inside. I hope you enjoy them! :)

    How long does the candy need to sit in the mold before it can be removed?

    • Candice

      The mixture is firm enough that it doesn’t have to sit in the mold at all. Just press it in and pop it out.
