Pinterest Cream Cheese Mints {Hit or Flop}


I found a very pretty looking idea on Pinterest for Christmas cream cheese mints.

Cream Cheese Mints


Let’s start with problem #1:

Way too much powdered sugar!  It was so think my poor Kitchen Aid mixer could barely handle it.

Problem #2:

Peppermint flavoring was terrible with all that sugar.


After working with the recipe I just finally pitched the bowl and started over with a better recipe.  It is one that was handed down to me and is by far way better!  I was able to make with both mint and banana flavorings with success.

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
3 oz cream cheese
1/2 tsp extract flavoring

Mix cream cheese, food coloring, & extract.  Add in powdered sugar. Add to pipping bag with large 1M tip.  Create stars on top of parchment paper lined pan.  Chill and package.

Keep this pin purely for the pretty packaging idea but forget the recipe!
