How to Make Cream Cheese Mints

Cream cheese mints are a classic wedding dessert. But they’re not only great for weddings. These mints are perfect for any occasion, including birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, and bridal showers.

We love them because you can make so many fun colors and flavors. (Not just mint!) We do want you to know they take some time to make, especially the forming. So make sure to set aside a good several hours. (The more helping hands – the better!). But they’re sooo worth it, we promise.

Recipe Instructions & Tips

Start with softened cream cheese. If you are making different colors and flavors, now is the time to separate the cream cheese. Divide into smaller bowls for the number of flavors and colors you plan to make.

Cream cheese separated in 4 bowls

Please note the whole recipe only uses 1 teaspoon of flavoring. So if you have four colors, you’ll only need 1/4 teaspoon of flavoring in each. Mix the flavor and food coloring into each bowl of cream cheese.

Food coloring added to cream cheese bowls and mixed

Divide the powdered sugar and slowly mix in each bowl. A stand mixer is really helpful if you have one.

Powdered sugar added to colored cream cheese in bowls

Prepare a bowl of white sugar for dipping. Take a small amount of dough and roll it into a ball. Then dip the ball in sugar and press into the mold.

Commonly asked questions


How long can cream cheese mints sit out?

I am extra careful with foods containing cream cheese and will only leave these mints out for 2 to 3 hours before putting them in the refrigerator.

How do you store cream cheese mints?

Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The mints will last a week or more.

Can I freeze cream cheese mints?

Yes! You can easily freeze these mints. This is perfect when making ahead of time for special occasions. Just thaw them out in the refrigerator the day of the event.

What is the best way to remove the mints from molds?

Gently turn the mold upside down and tap lightly to remove. Make sure you’ve rolled each mint in granulated sugar beforehand as this recipe states – otherwise, you may have issues with the mints sticking to the molds.
