Keto Cream Cheese Mints (No-Bake)

Keto Cream Cheese Mints (No-Bake)

keto cream cheese mintsAh, yes. Another Christmas recipe.

Actually, this one is my first official holiday recipe of December!

A start to what will probably be a flood of incoming recipes..

These little Keto Cream Cheese Mints are cute to look at and fun to eat.

They are the perfect sweet treat to get anyone in the holiday spirit!

The Sprinkles

I used regular sprinkles (aka sprinkles with sugar, AH OMG) in my cookies but I only used a few as my family members are not on a keto diet.

You can do the same if you don't mind a couple of added carbs (It really doesn't amount to much per mint!)

BUT if you would rather not use traditional sprinkles. Fear not. I have a solution. You can make your own sugar-free sprinkles! Who knew?!

Carolyn over at All Day I Dream About Food has a fantastic recipe that's easy to follow.

I highly suggest it if you aren't adding regular sprinkles.

Tools You'll Need To Make Keto Cream Cheese Mints

  • For this recipe I used my cute kitchen aid hand mixer. (I say cute because it comes in a variety of cool colours and I just-so-happened to get it in the colour red right before I began all of my Christmas / Holiday baking).
  • My trusty food scale that you've already probably heard me rave about a million and one times in my recipes. This little buddy is my longest-running kitchen tool and it goes EVERYWHERE with me. If I could choose just one kitchen item to rule them all, it would be this baby.

Tips For Making Keto Cream Cheese Mints

  • If your dough still seems very sticky when trying to roll balls, add a little more powdered sweetener OR covered your hands lightly in powdered sweetener. You can also refrigerate the dough itself for about 10min before rolling to make the process easier.
  • If you find your dough cracks at the edges when you press down with a fork, you can just gently push the cracks back together, they are quite easily fixed!
  • I highly recommend you make the mints small as they are quite sweet and as the recipe says, they are supposed to be like mints! Don't make them large like cookies.

Ingredients In Keto Cream Cheese Mints

  • Granular Monkfruit/Erythritol Sweetener – this is optional but I like it to coat the mints as it gives them that sparkly, glowy coating. I use LOVE this blend in many other baked recipes as you'll see on my site.
  • Pure Peppermint Extract – I highly recommend you use pure peppermint extract for this recipe as using a blend that is not pure typically means it's also diluted and you have to add a TON more to get the same amount of flavour…which ultimately means watering down your recipe. We don't want that with these no-bake cookies because they only have a few ingredients binding them together! I use this extract for mine.

*A quick note before we get to the recipe, I've re-created this recipe to be keto but the original idea and recipe came from the wonderful Trisha and Charlotte over at “SaltySideDish.com“. Thanks ladies for the awesome inspiration! 🙂
