2 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4-1/2 teaspoon Peppermint Oil
2 cups confectioners sugar (add more if mixture is sticky)
Blend cheese with Peppermint Oil* and color; mix in sugar, knead until mints are firm. Add additional sugar if needed. Roll in balls, place one side in a small amount of granulated sugar, press sugar side down in candy mold (unmold at once), or flatten with bottom end of glass on waxed paper.
* Start with 1/4 teaspoon and add a few drops at a time to reach desired flavor. Flavor will intensify as mints stand.
Yeild: 72 patties.
