Cream Cheese Mints or Candies

This is a slightly unusual but super easy use for Cream Cheese

This instructable will take you through how to make Cream Cheese mints.
In the last step I will go over how to switch up the ingredients to make candies.

Step 1: What you need


4oz or half a cup Cream Cheese 
1 Tablespoon of Unsalted Butter 
3-5 Cups of Powdered/Confectioners Sugar
Food Colouring
Regular granulated sugar
2-5 drops of Peppermint oil


Cookie cutters
Paper towels
Small Paint Brush ( that has not been used for paint)
Silicon baking mat or parchment paper
baking trays

<p>This is a great instructable. It reminds me of the good old days. And we always used butter flavoring almond flavoring and rum flavoring. I highly recommend the butter flavoring. Those are a hit.</p>
<p>I make these a lot except I use mold for every one and I roll a ball of it in sugar before pressing it into the mold</p>
if u want can u add extra flavoring by adding more drops
This uses super simple ingredients and is a great recipe and it is awesome
i did try it n it was awesome thanx BTW only the adults had ur version in my party they loved it, me n my friends stuck 2 the original version <br>xoxo :)
Have you ever used this recipe as a fondant on cakes?
an idea for good flavoring? anyone? <br>plz help
Real dark Jamaican rum and blueberry compote, SOOO good in my frosting so I bet it would be great in these. The rum would still have the alcohol content, since it doesn't get cooked. So this is an adult version. Haven't tried it but I bet you could replace the butter or cream cheese with the compote?
Very cool recipe! (I'm sorry you have to work on a yacht and be a SCUBA instructor, maybe some day you will be able to get a job in an office or factory ;D)
Looks Great! <br>i want try one! exelent for gifts.
I wrap them in clear plastic then lay them out on the guest bed's . Its a nice personal touch but some times people think they are bath soaps ba ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
That could be a sweet bath, mmmmmm xD<br>i can't find Peppermint oil D:
