Working Together

My first baby is graduating!! Where has the time gone? I have so many memories in my head and in my photo books and here we are making another one.

Lorene decided that we HAVE to have mints. So knowing nothing about the whole process I googled it, looked for an easy recipe and jumped in with both feet.

I found an easy recipe.

And away we went.

Lorene still had to text while working. Isn't this such an innovative generation.

Cream Cheese Mints

1 8oz. pkg cream cheese
1 2# bag of powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. peppermint flavor (or other flavor as desired)
gel color

I mixed it all up in the mixer, using not quite all of the powdered sugar which I used when I kneaded the color in to keep it from getting sticky.

I also kneaded it on a cutting board to keep my counter from turning colors.

I was very happy with the results.

The finished product!

That looks like a fun time! I thought about making mints but found a graduation mold for chocolates instead. We've made a few hundred mints over the years with graduations and weddings! Fun to see.

And they were sure good too. I've always liked homemade mints.

dear MintyMom,
I had to taste one, and yes, it was good. They were lovely to look at too!
Sorry i can't remember if there were mints or not at my graduation
