I made these cute, little candies today. They were super sweet and very easy to make!
3 ounces of cream cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon peppermint or almond extract (I used almond)
3 cups confectioners sugar
1.) Combine cream cheese and extract in a bowl.
2.) Beat in 1 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar.
3.) Knead in remaining sugar until smooth.
4.) Separate the mixture (if you're using more than one color)
and mix in food coloring.
5.) Now shape into 1/2 inch balls (I made mine a little too big.. oh well).
6.) Flatten the pieces with a fork and let stand for about an
hour to harden.
*Store in a container in the refrigerator.
