Cream Cheese Mints

These homemade cream cheese mints make me feel just a wee bit nostalgic for the 80’s. You see, I remember these when I was growing up. They would be served at graduation parties, weddings, and other celebrations.

As a little girl with no self-control, I would eat these by the handful.

I hadn’t eaten these for – well, decades – until I went home to visit my parents a few weeks ago. My mom and I made a batch, bringing some to Ladies Aid, giving some away to some friends, and eating some ourselves.

They tasted just as good as I remember.



  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 5-5 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • Gel food coloring, as needed



  1. To a large bowl, add cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar. Using an electric mixer, cream together until well blended.
  2. Add peppermint extract and food coloring, and mix to combine.
  3. Place a piece of wax paper on a work surface. Roll mixture into small balls, place on wax paper, and flatten each ball with a fork dipped in powdered sugar.
  4. Let rest on wax paper until dry, at least 2 hours, then store in refrigerator up to one month. Enjoy!
