Cream Cheese Mints

  • Author: Northern Yum
  • Total Time: 3 hours (including time to roll and mold)
  • Yield: 8 to 10 dozen (depends on molds used) 1x


Classic cream cheese mints are a classic wedding dessert. But they’re also great for baby showers, bridal showers, and more. Customize with your favorite flavors – mint, lemon, or almond. Make fun colors to coordinate with your event.






  1. Start with softened cream cheese. (Divide cream cheese in separate bowls if you are making different colors and flavors.)
  2. Mix in the flavoring and food coloring. (Please note the recipe only calls for 1 teaspoon flavoring, so 4 colors will only use 1/4 teaspoon per color.)
  3. Slowly mix in the powdered sugar. A stand mixer is really helpful.
  4. Take a small amount of dough and roll it into a ball.
  5. Dip in sugar and press into the mold.
  6. Slowly remove from the mold by tipping upside down.
  7. Allow the mints to dry for a few hours.
  8. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.


You can use any flavoring you like – lemon, mint, peppermint, and almond.

Store in the refrigerator. You can also freeze these mints.
