This homemade cream cheese mint recipe makes perfect cream cheese mints every time. There are only 4 ingredients needed to create a sweet treat that freezes wonderfully.


  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/21 teaspoon almond extract (or any extract flavoring of your choice)
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • Colored sugar
  • Food dye


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and extract.
  2. Slowly beat in powdered sugar by half cup until the mixture is smooth. Stop adding powdered sugar when the mixture is smooth and no longer sticky. A little less or more than 3 cups may be necessary.
  3. Next, stir in the food dye of your choice to tint your cream cheese mixture.
  4. With your hands, roll cream cheese dough into 1/2 inch size balls. Roll the balls in colored sugar.
  5. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and flatten with a fork. Let stand for 1 hour to harden.
  6. Store mints in an airtight container in the freezer or refrigerator, lining the container with waxed paper between each layer of mints.
  7. Depending on the size of the mints you roll, this recipe yields between 3 and 4 dozen mints.
