Cream Cheese Mints

I am finally done with baby shower preparations, or at least most of them. I still have to decorate the cake and make cake balls, but that should be easy as...well...cake.

Cream Cheese Mints



This recipe has been in my family for a while. I don't know where it came from orginially. It was given to me by my aunt. I doubled it...each recipe makes about 40 mints.

Ingredients
-3 ounces cream cheese
-2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
-1/2 teaspoon mint extract
-food coloring

Directions
1. Combine ingredients and knead with hands until a smooth dough forms.
2. Shape into small balls (about the size of marbles) or use molds to create desired shapes. Chill on wax paper for 1 to 2 hours or until set.

Mmm, these sound AMAZING! I love mints, and I love creaminess. Putting the two together is just genius! Sounds like the baby shower is coming along quite nicely :)
