We aren’t making those, but they are delicious!  My mom used to always make them around the holidays.  Unfortunately they would never keep in the heat we have here.

I had them at my last shower and Future Mother-In-Law said she might make them for the wedding too.

Not a regional thing, but I was first introduced to them (here in CA)  back in the mid-70’s.  Thanks for the memories.

@sudslover:

We made roses for ours in pink and white and used a shimmer sugar to roll them in so they sparkled.

OMG…I have never heard of these before.  They sound heavenly!  My taste buds love whoever posted the recipe, but my hips will be hating you LOL!

These were incredibly popular at the many weddings I attended as a kid in the 80s. (I didn’t technically attend the ceremonies since I was asked to help in the kitchen with arranging the mints and cleanup afterward). Haven’t seen them since ’89 though.

I’m considering making them for nostalgia’s sake. No idea what shape though.

Just curious: since there are alot of people who don’t like mint (maybe an equal number to those who do like it), has anyone experimented with other flavors? If so, what type of flavorings did/can you use? For example Wilton candy flavor oils or something else? Any recommendations on flavors to try?

I love these! So good! I like butter mints just a bit more though (more butter sans cream cheese). They will not be at the reception but butter mints will be! In the shape of green leaves and yellow hearts. Thanks Mom! ๐Ÿ™‚ I also like just rolling them out and cutting them into approx. 1/8-1/4″ “pillows”. This works great if you don’t have time to put them in the molds. They look like the butter mints from the store, but are soft and taste so much better.

If you haven’t tried either ladies you absolutely need to!

@Selene221:peppermint is really popular, but that is the only other one I have personally used.  You kind of need a strong flavor, but that is a good question.  I may have to do some experimenting this weekend.

@Pia2010:They are so good, next time you are at a cake place ask about them.  Try just one, I really think you will like them.

I love cream cheese mints!  It was one of my first “must-haves” after I got engaged.  I think I’ll be using heart molds (if I can find them) because that’s what is throughout all my wedding decor.
