Five Days of Fairy Food: Frosty Fairy Mints

Pin It Now!

Today, I am featuring Frosty Fairy Mints (from Barbara Beery's Fairies Cookbook). To see yesterday's post, Pixie Popcorn, click the link.

Frosty Fairy Mints


1 3-ounce package cream cheese

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. mint extract (I use a couple of drops of YL peppermint essential oil)

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.

***This is the recipe I copied from my other frosty fairy mints blog post. To see the original mints, click on the previous link. For these mints, I used sparkly, colored sugar and less food coloring.

I love these! I'm a mint lover anyway. I can't wait to show them to my 20 year old. She loves sparkly desserts!! We used blue sparkling sugar with white chocolate on some strawberries for the 4th.
The recipe is super simple as well!
I found you on One Sharendipity Place!
