Cream Cheese Mints

Combine in large bowl:
1 lb. Confectioners' sugar
3 oz Cream cheese; softened
Desired food coloring
Oil of peppermint or other desired flavoring

Also Need:
Yellow mint mold
Granulated sugar for dipping candies

Mix with fork until blended. Remove from bowl and knead until mixture is well blended.

TO MOLD: Shape a marble-sized piece into a ball, press into granulated sugar, taking care NOT to coat back. Press firmly into the yellow-flexible mint mold. Immediately unmold. You can unmold these directly onto a pretty serving dish or tray and, not being coated on the bottom, they will remain in place.

NOTE: If mixture sticks to the mold, add slightly more confectioners' sugar. Let set uncovered, for a few hours, for desired firmness. Wrap tray in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
