  • 1 bag powdered sugar
  • Candy flavoring (mint, raspberry, strawberry etc. They can be found at a candy or cake shop)
  • Cake decorating colors
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

    Bring the cream cheese to room temperature, then take a piece of wax paper and put your cream cheese on it. Dump about 1/2 the bag of powder sugar on top. Keeping it within the confines of the wax paper (makes less of a mess).

    Mix it all with your hands. Mix and mix and mix until you can feel that you need more powder sugar. Mix enough powder sugar in until it is of a stiff consistency. But not too stiff. You want it stiff enough so that when you work with it in the molds it won't lose it's shape.

    When it seems to have to correct consistency, add the flavor to taste and color to your liking. (Mint works great with green.)

    Take a small ball of mint mixture in your hand and roll it around in the granulated sugar. Press it into the rubber mold and then just flip it over and press it out of the mold. The key is to always roll it in sugar before going into the mold and then it won't stick.
