This recipe was given to me by a coworker. I normally don't like mints, but these are great. She says that the batter is a little dry, but never add more liquid than what is needed. She also said the light cream cheese doesn't work well. She uses candy molds for her mints.

What a great way to use up leftover cream cheese. Easy & delicious. The only change I would make to the recipe is to use the regular paddle hook in your mixer (if you have a kitchenaid). The dough hook didn't do anything, but the paddle blended the mint batter perfectly. Thanks for a great recipe.

Mint is awesome but experiment with other flavorings. I made several colors for my wedding and added a different flavor for each. Strawberry was good but the almond flavored were a huge hit.

These are excellent! I am required to make these for every baby shower I am invited to (along with the cake). I use a rubber mint mold that make 25 mints at one time. I perfer to use 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract instead of peppermint oil. Once the mints have dried out, I store them in a rubbermaid container (with a tight fitting lid). lay the mints flat. Separate the layers with waxed paper and freeze until ready to use. Be sure to check out the picture :)
