Cream Cheese Mints


These are so easy and so delicious! For me, they taste like the York Peppermint patties without the chocolate. I am a big chocolate lover so for me to say I love them without the chocolate is a big deal.
  • Ingredients:
    • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    • 6 cups powdered sugar
    • 1/4 cup butter, softened
    • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • Directions:
    • In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar. Add the peppermint extract. Mix well until smooth. 
    • Take rounded teaspoon-size amounts of mixture and roll them into some extra powdered sugar and roll into balls. 
    • Place balls on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. 
    • Dip the tines of a fork in powdered sugar and press lightly into each ball.
    • Allow to dry to about 2 hours and then flip each patty over.
    • Let dry for another hour or so.
  • Makes about 4-5 dozen patties, depending on the size you choose.
