Homemade Mints Recipe

Publisher Photo
David and I hosted a delicious dinner at my parents' house after our outdoor ceremony at a scenic spot. Our guests appreciated a tray of pretty, refreshing mints after the hearty meal. These mints are easy to make and have wonderful homemade flavor.

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (3 each) equals 79 calories, 2 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 5 mg cholesterol, 14 mg sodium, 16 g carbohydrate, 0 fiber, trace protein.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and mint extract until smooth. Gradually beat in as much confectioners' sugar as possible; knead in remaining confectioners' sugar.
  2. Divide mixture into four portions. Tint one pink, one green and one yellow, leaving one portion white. For each color, shape into 1/2-in. balls. Dip one side of each ball into sugar. Press sugared side into small candy molds; unmold and place on waxed paper. Let stand 1 hour or until dry before storing in airtight containers; refrigerate. May be stored for up to 1 week before serving. Yield: about 12-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Mints may also be made without molds by placing sugar side up on waxed paper. Flatten with a fork, forming a crisscross pattern.
