These creamy sugar mints are perfect for serving at a holiday party or giving as a hostess gift in a cute box or tin. They’re simple enough that your kids could help, and a yummy treat that will keep in the fridge for several weeks!
- 3 Tbsp reduced fat cream cheese softened
- 1⁄4 tsp mint extract
- 4 to 4 1⁄2 cups confectioners sugar
- 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- food coloring optional
Beat cream cheese for two minutes until soft and fluffy. Add mint extract (and food coloring if using it) and mix well.
Slowly add the confectioners sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, to form a stiff mixture.
Make small 1/2 teaspoon size balls. Roll them in the granulated sugar and then flatten with a fork.
