This was an awesome recipe! they taste like the inside part of a peppermint patty! I made multi-colored teddy bear molds and regular white discs with the fork tine "design" on them (tried to post pictures on here but it didn't work). These mints couldn't be any easier and the taste is so melt-in-your-mouth delicious! I double the recipe just so that I didn't have half a cream cheese block sitting around and I'm glad I did because the kids, and my hubby (okay, and me too) devoured them in a heartbeat! these will be given as Christmas gifts this year because they are that tasty and that easy to make! I let mine dry overnight and I turned them 1 time thru the drying process. Also, if the "dough" gets too sticky, just add a bit more powdered sugar. I found that if I scooped some out and placed it on the wax paper, it was easier to mold when I was done scooping & back at the beginning to my 1st ball. After molding the last ball into the round shape, I went back to the beginning again and imprinted with the fork tines and didn't need any excess sugar on the fork because the mints had kind of crusted diminishing the need to use sugar to keep the fork from sticking. I used the sugar to make the teddy bear molds but after tasting the two, I actually like the non sugared mints better (they really tasted much smoother and creamier without the extra sugar). I will continue to make them both ways-the kids really enjoy the molded mints! Thank you so much Diane for sharing this!10stars!!!
