The Partiologist: Mints For Mom!

Mints For Mom!

Before Mother's day is here and gone, I want to share something pretty and easy to make for mom.  And that's why these Cream Cheese Mints were created.  Or should I say "Grown" since they're flowers?

Cream Cheese Mints
 
 One batch makes a HUGE flower garden!
CREAM CHEESE MINT RECIPE 
8 oz. cream cheese (room temperature)
2 lbs. powdered sugar
2 drops mint flavored oil (I used Cream de Menthe)
 
Mix all ingredients together.  Divide dough in sixths.  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.
That is how I divided my dough.
Use any silicone mold.
I used a flower mold I had on hand which is actually an ice cube tray.
Wrap each color in saran wrap until you're ready to use it.
Roll out a little ball.
Dip in sugar.
Press into mold.
Pop Out.
 
That's it.  It's that easy!

And I found the perfect box to package them in from the Dollar Store~
 I also thought they would be pretty in a clear candy box~
 With a pretty printable!
