Melt-in-your-mouth Shower Mints

For as long as I can remember, my mom has been making little "bootie mints" for baby showers! ...And, ever since I've been old enough to appreciate them, I feel that a shower is incomplete if the aren't there! They are YUMMY...and you can't help but eat the 'dough' as you're spending the ridiculous amount of time making them...So, for your next shower, treat the mommy-to-be with these...she'll thank you, I'm sure! :)
Cream Cheese Mints (or "kay dee' to Quinn)
1-8 oz package of cream cheese
2 lbs. powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
choice of food coloring
Mix cream cheese and peppermint. Add food coloring until you reach desired color. Mix in sugar... kneading with hands until consistency is like stiff pie dough. Coat rubber candy mold with granulated sugar before placing mixture in to make individual mints!
This recipe makes a TON!
