2. Add mint flavoring when cream cheese is soft. Then add coloring. Start with a little then wait and see how the color turns out. You may need to add more depending on your preference. Mix.

3. Gradually begin adding powdered sugar. Be careful–this step can get messy! You may have to knead the remaining powdered sugar in later when you remove the dough.

4. When powdered sugar is mixed in, or mostly mixed in, remove the dough. Place on cutting board.

5. Use a food mold. You can buy these at most craft or cooking stores. Take small chunks of the dough and press into the mold. Remove mint from the mold and place on plate.

Kristy shapes mints.

6. Keep plate refrigerated until needed.

    • The number of mints made can depend on the molds used, but we got approximately 200 out of the one you see in the video. We hope you enjoy them!

    • Lorella,

      They can be made in advance, and they can be frozen up to six months. I hope you enjoy them!
