|8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature|
|2-pound bag of powdered/confectioners sugar (you may not need the whole bag)|
|Food flavoring (peppermint, almond or vanilla work well)|
|Granulated sugar, for coating mints|
- Place cream cheese in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, start adding powdered sugar until you reach the consistency of play dough. This will probably be slightly less than a 2-pound bag of powdered sugar. If the dough is sticky at all, keep adding powdered sugar.
- Add a drop or two of flavoring and mix to incorporate. Add more flavoring if desired.
- Place equal portions of the dough into separate bowls. Add desired food coloring and mix well.
- To make mints, take a marble-sized portion of dough, roll it in granulated sugar, and press into a mint mold. Remove mint by inverting the mint mold. The mint should pop right out. Repeat with remaining dough. Store in fridge until ready to serve.
