Stock your own Skiving Snackbox using these, heat-inducing Fever Fudge, and some bloody good Nosebleed Nougat.
Step 1: Supplies
Cream cheese, room temperature - 2 oz (measure by weight or use 1/4 of an 8oz box)
Powdered Sugar - 1 lb (you will only need about half of the bag but you may need extra to get the texture right)
Food Color powders, pastes, or gels in yellow, red, and blue
garlic powder - 1/8 teas
anise extract* (this tastes like black licorice) - 1/8 teas
peppermint or other mint extract* - 1/4 teas
*You can use flavor oils traditionally used in candy making but you'll want to taste test to determine the right amount.
Step 2: Coloring and Flavoring
In one container, add yellow and red food coloring. In that same container, add your garlic and anise. Stir until the color is uniform. The color of the final product will be a slightly faded version of what it looks like now. Adjust the color by adding more food coloring, if desired.
In the second container, add red and blue food coloring along with the peppermint extract. Stir until a uniform color is achieved. Adjust the color as before.
