The Partiologist: Conversation Heart Party - Cream Cheese Mints

Conversation Heart Party - Cream Cheese Mints

After finding my mint molds from years ago (I made 500 daisy shaped cream cheese mints with little yellow centers for my wedding) I wanted to add some heart shaped mints for the party~

Valentine Mints
 
Making sure everyone was able to take them home,I had to package them.  Because really, with all the other treats, who is going to eat a mint? 
 
After mixing the mint "dough"  plop it on a cutting board~
Cut in sections to color~
Add a drop of food color to each section until you get your desired color and form in a little mint mold.  Sorry, I guess I stopped taking photos, I have a short attention span.

Here they are before getting "dressed" for the party~
Why not add these sweet little treats to your party??
I am still doing the Happy Dance!
I might have to stop dancing, I was told you can't see the recipe! 
If not, here it is~
Cream Cheese Mints
8 oz. cream cheese (room temperature)
2 lbs. powdered sugar
2 drops mint flavored oil (I use Cream De Menthe)
Mix all ingredients together. Add food coloring, one drop at a time until you reach the desired color.  Mix until all color is blended. Roll into small balls then dip in sugar. Press into molds and pop out immediately. It will make approximately 200 mints.
It Was Mint To Be!

  5. My family makes cream cheese mints for weddings, etc. My grandmother swears by using half rum extract and half whatever flavor that batch will be. They are certainly tasty!

  6. How long will these mints keep? I'm making them for a baby shower I'm helping host so I need to know how soon I can make them.

    1. You can make them today and stick them in the freezer between layers of wax paper! They freeze great!
