Put thin mints in a food processor until very fine. mix in cream cheese with your hands. Refrigerate mixture for 20 minutes.

Remove from fridge and roll into 1.5 inch balls. Add sticks.

The reasoning for this is that the balls expand as they warm to room temperature. You don’t want to dip and coat them while they are still cold because the coating will crack once they expand.

Decorate as you wish! I don’t have a picture of the tuxedo dipping, but I tilted the cakepop and did each half of the tux. I took dried plain white cakepops and used a piping bag to make a decorative white design (like a lace dress). I covered those with white mini non pareils and the white-on-white looked phenom!
