Growing up, I used to love making cream cheese mints with my grandma. They are an easy and light treat to make, being great for after a meal. The recipe even won a 1st place blue ribbon at the Kansas State Fair in the Girl Scout House! I’m also very excited to make cream cheese mints for after dinner at my upcoming wedding reception. While my grandma had a much more secretive recipe, the one listed below from All Recipes is somewhat similar. Hope you enjoy
1 (3oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp. butter softened
3 cups confectioners’ sugar
2 drops peppermint oil
Prep: 30 min
In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, and confectioner’s sugar.
Mix in peppermint oil.

Let dry for about 2 hours on waxed paper, then freeze or refrigerate.
