Using a mixer, combine softened cream cheese with mint extract and food coloring. Beat until smooth and creamy. Add more food color if necessary to get it to the color you like.
Slowly begin to add powdered sugar.
Once you've added the powdered sugar and your mixture isn't smooth you'll need to add some milk. Add just one Tbsp at a time to get the right consistency..mixture should be smooth but very stiff. once it starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl you are good to go
to make the mints, take a quarter tsp of the mixture and roll into a ball. then using the palm of your hang gently smoosh down the ball until it's flattened to about 1/4 thick. then press the back of a fork lightly on the mints to form ridges..roll each mint in granulated sugar and then pop them in the refrigerator to cool and harden
makes 7 dozen. these mints freeze really well also!
