Cooking Thursday-No bake mints


(the main players)




(getting ready to chill)


(yum!)
Does it count as cooking if the recipe is no bake? Hmmm...well it is still a recipe right?

*****A Minty Memory*******

So I was looking at my friends' Facebook album, and she had pictures of cakes that she had decorated. While browsing her album, I also saw that she had some pictures of mints that she had made. It brought back fun memories of a childhood friend who made these. She always had some at church and we would line up to get some.

I looked up a recipe and got to making them. My 3 older kids LOVED them. My 5 yr old let me know, by spitting it out in the trash, and yelling "I am not eating anymore of this POISON!" I think that meant he wasn't a fan.

NO BAKE CREAM CHEESE MINTS:
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
32 oz. of powdered sugar
mint extract
food coloring


In a large bowl, put your softened cream cheese. Add powdered sugar a little at a time. The more you add, the more thick it gets. Make sure you have some muscles...or a mixer! lol

Once sugar and cream cheese are fully mixed, add your mint extract. Remember the rule, that you can always add more, but you can't take it away. So do a little bit at a time until you reach your desired minty-ness.

Roll into balls and place on a tray. Chill these in the freezer or the fridge until cool. You can also press into molds if desired.

Store in an airtight container for 2-3 weeks!
