Frosty Fairy Mints

Pin It Now! I made these sweet, little treats for a "fairy party" I hosted for my 4 year old daughter and her cousin.

Frosty Fairy Mints


1 3-ounce package cream cheese

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. mint extract

Assorted pastel food coloring

1/2 cup sugar

**Mix softened cream cheese and powdered sugar with an electric mixer. Add mint extract to dough. Knead dough until it begins to form a ball and is the consistency of pie dough. If dough is too dry, add 1/4 tsp. water and blend into mixture.

Divide dough into 3 equal pieces and put 2-3 drops of food coloring onto each section. Blend colors into each portion. You can leave colors swirled or completely blend evenly.

Pinch off about a 2-inch piece of dough and form a ball by rolling between palms. Roll ball in sugar. Flatten out dough and cut into assorted shapes with a small cookie cutter.
