The BEST Cream Cheese Mints

The BEST Cream Cheese Mints #The #BEST #Cream #Cheese #Mints Cookie Recipes Chocolate Chip, Cookie Recipes Easy, Cookie Recipes Christmas,The recipe that you guys have been asking for for YEARS! Yup, I’m super prompt like that… Whoops! Okay so let’s get right to it. Many of you have called these cream cheese butter mints, wedding mints, baby shower mints, and it’s true, they go by many names. I have always called them cream cheese mints because in my recipe, cream cheese is the prominent ingredient.
There are lots of recipes out there for these mints that call for only 3 or 4 ounces of cream cheese. I use an entire brick. The reason? These candies will literally melt in your mouth they’re so creamy and delicious. That’s what makes them the BEST Cream Cheese Mints around!

I don’t know why, but these little balls of cream cheese goodness make me incredibly happy

We love making these cream cheese mints for Easter and Christmas, but also they are fantastic for baby showers, weddings, and just parties in general. They’re so easy to make and since you can make them ahead of time… well, let’s just say that’s awesome.

When you’re making a recipe that calls for just a few ingredients, it’s important to use high quality ingredients. I used Challenge Butter and cream cheese for this recipe because they’re the brand I’ve used and trusted for years and years. Made with 100% real cream, it’s my butter of choice.

I used Challenge cream cheese for these luscious mints because it is extra creamy and delicious! As a Challenge ambassador, I love sharing their amazing, high quality products with you. I’ve been using Challenge butter forEVER and their cream cheese is just as fantastic!
