If you love homemade candy recipes, you NEED to try cream cheese mints! These are super easy, no-bake buttery melt-in-your-mouth mints that are easy to whip up! Here are ten cream cheese mint recipes to try! 

What Are Cream Cheese Mints?

Cream cheese mints are small, melt-in-your-mouth candies made from a simple mixture of cream cheese, powdered sugar, flavoring, and food coloring. They are air-dried to achieve a firm yet creamy texture. They are also known as wedding mints or baby shower mints and are often served at weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, Easter, graduation parties, and other occasions.

How do you Prepare Cream Cheese Mints?

Basic Ingredient for Cream Cheese Mints

  • Cream Cheese: Provides a rich, creamy base with a slight tanginess. My cream cheese mint recipes call for 4 ounces of softened cream cheese.
  • Butter- Butter gives these mints the perfect consistency and a melt-in-your-mouth texture.
  • Powdered confectioners sugar: Sweetens the mints and helps to create a smooth, pliable dough.
  • Flavoring: While peppermint extract or mint is commonly used, other flavors such as vanilla extract,  cherry almond, lemon, cinnamon, or lime can also be used.
  • Food Coloring adds vibrant colors to match the occasion’s theme. You can use liquid or gel food coloring in your cream cheese mints!


Sheet Pan or Cookie Sheet

Parchment paper or wax paper

electric mixer or stand mixer

You can shape your cream cheese mint using the tines of a fork or candy molds.


  1. Mixing: Start by softening the cream cheese, then gradually beat in the powdered sugar until a dough forms. Add the chosen flavoring and food coloring.
  2. Shaping: The dough can be rolled into small balls and then flattened with a fork or pressed into silicone molds for more intricate shapes.
  3. Drying: To firm up, allow the mints to air dry on a parchment-lined baking sheet for several hours or overnight.
  4. Storing: Store the mints in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for longer shelf life.
