  • Combine cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl and mix until smooth.
  • Add 1 cup of powdered sugar and mix until smooth.
  • Add the mint extract and mix until combined.
  • Gradually, add the remaining powdered sugar until smooth and consistent. You can do this with a stand mixer, food processor, or by hand.
  • Separate the mixture into four separate bowls, or however many different colors you want.
  • Add a small amount of food color to each bowl and stir in until the color is uniform.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm enough to handle. You don't want it sticking to your hands.
  • Line 2 quarter sheet pans with parchment paper and liberally dust with powdered sugar. Set aside.
  • Pinch off small amounts of the dough and form into a 1-inch balls.
  • Roll each ball in powdered sugar and place on prepared sheet pans.
  • Gently press the tines of a fork into the top of each ball. (You can also use the bottom of a shot glass if you don't want the lines. Just dip the bottom of the glass into powdered sugar to keep it from sticking.)
  • Let stand, uncovered, for at least 4 hours or until the mints are firm. If the bottoms have any moisture, flip over and let stand again until the bottoms of the mints are also firm.
  • Store in an airtight container, separating layers with parchment or waxed paper, for up to 2 weeks at room temperature.
  • Mints can be refrigerated or frozen if desired.
