TOOLS USED TO MAKE
- Hand Mixer – In the kitchen, a good hand mixer can truly change your life. There’s no time like now to fix that if you don’t have one as part of your kitchen utensils!
- Stand Mixer – A stand mixer can really make light of a lot of work. Stand mixers can handle a greater volume of ingredients unlike a hand mixer. A stand mixer on your counter or in your kitchen is a great idea if you do a lot of mixing!
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1 1/4 cups powdered erythritol
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 2 tsp peppermint extract
- To a mixing bowl, add all ingredients.
- Mix the ingredients using a hand mixer or stand mixer until it gets well combined.
- Into the refrigerator, place the bowl and chill for at least two hours.
- Remove the bowl and create a large “dough” ball with the chilled mixture using your hands.
- Pinch off small pieces of the “dough” and between your palms, roll them into balls.
- Onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place these pieces.
- To gently smash each ball into a flatter wafer shape, use a fork.
- Into the refrigerator again, place the baking sheet for one hour.
- Into an airtight container, place the mints and separate layers with parchment paper.
- Store mints in the refrigerator/freezer.
