Peppermint Patties
A delightfully refreshing mint wrapped in sweet chocolate.
Serves: 36 patties
  • 2¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 2 tablespoons cream OR half and half
  • 12 ounce chocolate candy melts
  1. Mix the powdered sugar, butter, cream and 2 teaspoons peppermint extract with mixer until smooth and creamy.
  2. Place waxed paper on counter and dust with powdered sugar.
  3. Use two spoons or spatula to form mixture into an elongated ball in the bowl.
  4. Lift mixture onto waxed paper and quickly roll into a uniform log. Handle as little as possible as the heat from your hands will make it sticky.
  5. Roll log into waxed paper and chill for at least one hour. Overnight is better.
  6. Place candy melts in microwave safe bowl and melt according to package directions.
  7. While candy coating is heating, remove log from refrigerator and slice into uniform slices ¼ inch thick. Return half the slices to the refrigerator.
  8. When candy coating is melted, place a filling slice on a fork and quickly dip into the chocolate. Use a spoon if necessary to lift chocolate over the top of the slice.
  9. Let chocolate drip back into the bowl for a few seconds, then push the candy off the fork with a sharp knife point onto a piece of waxed paper or parchment paper.
  10. Let chocolate harden before serving.
  11. Store in the refrigerator.
