Who else is making cream cheese mints for thier wedding? And what’s your mold shape?
I’m doing sea turtles; probably in 2 different shades of green.
Do many people do this anymore? I know it’s been done for a decades, my parents had cream cheese mints at their wedding back in the 70s.

I’ve never heard of them but they sound delicious!
ETA: I just looked up the recipe and they look like/remind me of the melt-away mints you buy from Hickory Farms.

They are mints made from cream cheese, powdered sugar, and mint extract; then rolled in regular sugar. (Food coloring and pressing into molds is optional.)

They aren’t quite the same babyboo, the cream-cheese mints are soft (cream-cheese consistancy) and need to be kept refrigerated/frozen.
I do like those melt-away mints too though! I always buy them around Christmas! 🙂

I ordered 100’s of them, just so I can freeze them afterwards. LOL, it is always one of the first questions I ask girlfriends after congratulating them on the engagement “Are you having cream cheese mints at the reception?”

i’m not familiar with these. how do you keep them refrigerated during the reception? and are they really as good as everyone says? i wanna try one now! 🙂

No need to refrigerate during reception, they are sturdy enough to last for hours. You do need to refrigerate until use. And OMG, yes they are that good. I may just have to make some this weekend just for fun.
3 oz. cream cheese
2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. flavoring (mint)
Mix with hands. Roll in balls. Coat with sugar. Press into rubber mold. Pop out. Makes 70 roses and 100 leaves. Also can color sugar and leave dough white.

Hmmm, those sound good. I wonder how they would taste with other flavors? My mind is spinning now. Lemon, Almond, Raspberry. I feel a trip to my local candy supply shop coming on!

I’ve never heard of them either – must be regional. I saved the recipe, though, as they sound SO good. (And easy to make – another plus!)
