Home Made Junior Mints

The Menu:
Home Made Junior Mints

The Original Recipe:
Don't ask questions. Just make these. You will not be sorry.

Home Made Junior Mints

3 oz. cream cheese (I used Neufchatel)
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp. peppermint extract
3/4 bag of Hershey's dark chocolate chips

Mix cream cheese (make sure it's room temperature), powdered sugar and peppermint extract. It will be dough like and maybe even a bit crumbly. Shape into small round balls and flatten with palms (they will look like Jr. Mints). Place on cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Melt chocolate on stove until smooth. Using toothpick stab mint in center and dip in chocolate to cover, tap on edge of pan if to thick. Refrigerate on wax paper until hardened. Enjoy!

*Junior Mints are my absolute favorite candy! These are sooo good. I can definitely sub. these for the real thing and not be disappointed!
