If you are tired of purchasing peppermint candies and tired of how hard they are, well, give this Chewy Peppermint Candies recipe a try. You only need 3 ingredients to make them! My sister calls them peppermint cookies but I consider them more of a candy.
Chewy Peppermint Candies Recipe
2 lbs. confectioner's sugar
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
In a large mixing bowl combined together all 3 of the ingredients in the order they are given in the recipe. I find it best to use an electric mixer set on low speed. Roll out the candy dough onto wax paper. Cut the candy into your desired shapes and place them onto a baking sheet. Place sheet in the refrigerator so they harden up. Once harden remove them and place into an airtight container.
