    Hi Sherrie!

    Thanks for your interest in my food blog.
    I decided to check out your forum when you
    asked if you could post one of my recipes.
    I have joined now, and can post it myself-
    I hope it's in the right place.

    Cream Cheese Mints


    4 ounces cream cheese -- softened
    1 teaspoon peppermint extract
    1 pound powdered erythritol
    food coloring -- if desired

    Combine cream cheese, extract and food coloring, if desired, in large mixer bowl until thoroughly blended.

    Beat in powdered erythritol. Mixture will be crumbly, but will stick together when pressed with fingers. (At this point, it reminds me of bean bag chair filling, tinted pale green.)

    Mold as desired; pop out of molds and let dry at room temperature.

    I got 90 small (about 1 1/8" across and 1/4" thick) mints from this recipe

    Damsel it is a sugar alcohol like xylitol, you have 2 choices, buy it from the states or buy it in Australia in Bulk. *Website that used to sell it in bulk doesn't appear to be there anymore!*
