The Partiologist: Maple Leaf Cream Cheese Mints

Maple Leaf Cream Cheese Mints

What do you do when you have a leaf shaped mint mold?  Make cream cheese mints, right?  I've got the recipe.

Maple Leaf Cream Cheese Mints

Truthfully, I have no idea why I ever bought the leaf shaped mold in the first place... I'm sure I had a good reason.

Because fall is in the air and my sister loves cream cheese mints, I decided this would be the route to take.  Like, make cream cheese mints for my sister.

What's better than raking leaves?  Making leaves!

So with a little food color, I got started.

After they were all made, I wondered if I should have flavored them with maple flavoring instead of mint?  You know they are maple leaves.

Hmmm, I wonder how that would have tasted.  I may never know.

Mix the cream cheese mint mixture with gold food color.

Shape into a small ball and roll in sugar.

Press into the mint mold, turn the mold over and release.

Make one or as many colors as you like.  Looks like I liked four colors.

  4. I love your maple leaf mints! Perfect for after Thanksgiving dinner when we are too *stuffed* for dessert but still want a little something sweet! And just know you're not the only one who buys molds/icing decos/shaped pans with no clue as to what you're going to use them for! ;)

    1. They would be perfect for a little something sweet. Happy to know I'm not the only one buying molds for...just in case! LOL
