Cream Cheese Mints – Great Party Nibbles

. at . Leave a comment

My mom used to make these at Christmastime. I loved them. She always made them green and minty. Today I wanted to make something that was fast, easy, tasty, and bite-sized. These cream cheese mints fit that description.

Thankfully I had the 5 ingredients. These lemony discs are a tasty 1 1/4th inches

Thankfully I had the 5 ingredients. These lemony discs are a tasty 1 1/4th inches


  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon extract (I used lemon extract.)
  • Few drops of food coloring (I used 2 drops of yellow.)
  • 3 cups sifted powdered sugar
  •  Granulated sugar


  • Stir in extract and food colouring into cream cheese until it is smooth, soft, and colour is uniform.
  •  Incorporate sifted powdered sugar, stirring in one cup at a time.
  • If mixture is sticky, put it into the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Scoop out 3/4 tsp of mixture.
  • Shape into a ball.
  • Roll ball in sugar and place on wax paper.


    Until you chill the discs on each side, they are sticky. I will freeze these for the Women’s Tea on February 8th. I will let you know how they taste.

  • Flatten each ball with the bottom of a juice glass.
  • Let it sit 90 minutes in refrigerator and then turn over.
  • Let it chill for another 90 minutes.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freeze up to 1 month.
  • I made 60 pieces.

Your Turn . . .
