Cream Cheese Mints for One

Everyone in my family loves this recipe for cream cheese mints for one. When we were kids, we loved going to family reunions, graduations and weddings for these little mints. Because I rarely get the excuse to make a full batch of these for large events, I scaled down the recipe so I could make them for myself anytime.

The recipe is pretty simple. You basically just mix together cream cheese, butter, confectioners' sugar, and a little bit of flavoring. I really love butter flavoring because I love the rich taste of butter mints, but you can use any flavor you'd like. Since this is a tiny batch, you'll want to use a very small amount of flavoring, because a little can go a long way, particularly if you'll be using peppermint or spearmint flavoring. You can use food coloring if you'd like, but it's not necessary, and I prefer not to in this small batch because it can add a slightly bitter flavor.
