Although I do not know where the original recipe came from, my great aunt made a slightly changed form of this for my sister's wedding. I loved it and have made them multiple times since. This is truly a wonderfully sweet candy recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons half-and-half
  • 14 cup butter
  • 1 (15 ounce) boxwhite creamy frosting
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract (or 1 tsp. of other flavoring - strawberry is my favorite)
  • food coloring

  1. Combine cream cheese, half and half, and butter in heavy saucepan.
  2. Stir over low heat until creamy and butter has melted.
  3. Blend in frosting mix and stir until blended well.

  6. Note, though, if you would like to use candy molds or have an itch to try something equally sweet, look into using the Alternative Creamy Mints Recipe.
