    Jamie78's Note:

    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.

      The taste, texture and everything was great! My only complaint is that the recipe says it make 30 mint balls so I bought enough for 10 batches so I'd have 300 mints for the wedding. turned out that it made closer to 150 mints per batch. Now I have to find a way to use all the left over cream cheese. lol
