"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Combine the cream cheese and powdered sugar thoroughly. Add the oil and food coloring, mixing thoroughly once again. Roll a tiny piece (about 1/4 teaspoon) of the mixture in the palm of your hand. Roll this in the sugar, then press into a rubber mold. Push the molded dough out onto a piece of waxed paper. Let set for at least 24 hours to harden. They can be placed at room temperature, in boxes, for weeks before serving.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Don't add too much flavoring oil. Try to make the color match the flavor, i.e. pink/peppermint, green/wintergreen, blue/spearmint, etc. Don't cover and refrigerate, because they will sweat and become soft when they hit room temperature
