1 package (3 ounce size) cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon flavoring (peppermint, butter, almond, wintergreen or whatever)
food coloring or colored sugared (optional)
3 cups confectioners' sugar (as needed)
granulated sugar


Mix cheese in bowl until soft. Add coloring and flavoring (very slowly -- on high humidity days, it will take less); gradually add the sugar. Mix and knead until it is the consistency of pie dough or putty.

Roll into balls the size of a marble. Dip balls in granulated sugar and press firmly into a candy mold. Unmold at once onto waxed paper. Once firm, transfer onto a cake rack and let dry for a few hours. They will keep a long time if you store them in an air-tight container.

The rose mold can be found at Michael's Crafts. I used to make these years ago with my Mother - each of us four kids would make our own flavor and color....mine was always red with cinnamon oil in the rose mold (oils also found at Michaels). Make happy memories!

My mother and I have used the mint recipe for 40+ years and it is always a hit. And yes, you can refrigerate it to use later. We make up the mint, color, flavor and all, put it in a plastic bag and keep it for up to a week. Comes out great. Love this recipe and am often asked to prepare it for different occasions.

I figured making candies like these would be far more work than this but this was one of the easiest recipes I think I've ever made! And they turned out nice too. I got candy molds from Michael's crafts (Wilton brand) and there are so many cool molds that these have possibilities for any holiday or occasion.

Helped make these for a friend's wedding. They turned out beautifully! Used butter flavoring and tinted them pink.

Okay, I am wondering if I can make up the recipe and keep in the fridge, and then make the candy as I have time?? Will it become too stiff to use?

I was given this recipe from my Grandmother, who also gave me all of her molds. I must have 30+ of them! (of course, adding to my collection over the years.) Making these is one of my favorite things to do. They are a MUST at any wedding, graduation, baby shower ect. I have Christmas molds that I make up during the holidays. They add a nice touch to my cookie trays.

Molds are available at several sources online. Google mint molds.

This is something my mom used to make in fact she had the rose soft rubber mold still!...if anyone knows where I can find these molds please let me know... I made this for my sons wedding and it was a huge hit and brought back many memories for many of us older people! The cream cheese does tend to get a little too soft when sitting out for a while so I would just pop in fridge to set for a while and could work with it again without sticking to your hands.
