“These are rich, simple mints often seen at wedding receptions, baby showers, and graduation parties, and they make a perfect last-minute addition to holiday candy trays. Try substituting almond extract for the peppermint. You can roll them in colored sugar before flattening them, if desired.”

I make this recipe every Christmas. I have found that one 8 oz block of cream cheese and 1-2 pound bag of powdered sugar with 1 teaspoon of mint works great. Using 1/2 tsp of mint and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla is tasty as well. Try dipping the finished mints in dark chocolate.

This was an excellent recipe, which made a tasty and smooth candy. I had trouble with the pliability of another similar recipe on this site... but this one was quite easy and I was able to mold it into shapes using candy molds. I did add some chocolate coating to mine when hardened, but they would be fine without that. The texture was terrific... very "melt-in-your- mouth" good! Thanks!

I also used this recipe for wedding favors and they turned out awesome! I rolled them in sugar and pressed them into heart molds. The sugar made them all "sparkly" giving them an even better appearance. They tasted great and held the heart shape really well. Great recipe!
