We have more to make tomorrow but here is some of what we have made today...

Christmas Mints

3 oz. cream cheese
2 1/2 C. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. mint extract
1/4 tsp. water (if needed)
sugar sprinkles for rolling in

Mix the cream cheese and powdered sugar together. Add extract and water if needed to make the mixture pull together into a ball. Roll out marble sized portions and roll in decorative sugar sprinkles. 

We added green food coloring to half of our batch for some color but ultimately decided that we liked the look of the white mints in colored sprinkles better. Although, with enough green ones, you could make your own minty Christmas tree!

My giggly girls!
