Easy Molded Party Mints Recipe
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 (3oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. peppermint flavoring
Sugar Candy mold
Mix first 4 ingredients. Knead several times. When dough is smooth, roll into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill 2 hours. Roll into small balls, dip in sugar and press into mold. If mints stick to mold, knead in more powdered sugar. Remove from mold and let dry 1/2 hour. Store in airtight container. Can be frozen or refrigerated. Makes 100 one inch mints.
Use food coloring to match the bride’s colors.
You can buy molds in the craft section at Wal Mart, or a cake decorating shop. Use anything you like – hearts, leaves and shells all work well.
Kristina Writes: I wanted to add a tip to your Molded Party Mints recipe. If you don’t have molds for your mints, you can roll into balls and use an initial imprint stamp with the first initial of the bride and groom’s last name. Just push the stamp down in the center of the mint and use even pressure. They look like designer mints. If you powder the mints with more sugar, do so before you stamp the mint. Thanks for letting me put in my two cents!
