How To Make Homemade Peppermint Patties

Posted in : Desserts on by : allison Tags: , , , , , , ,



3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
4 cups confectioners’ sugar
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening


In a large mixing bowl, combine condensed milk and peppermint extract. Beat in enough confectioners’ sugar, a little at a time, to form a stiff dough that is no longer sticky. Form into 1 inch balls, then place on waxed paper and flatten with fingers to form patties. Place patties in the freezer until the patties are froze.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate with shortening, stirring often. Remove from heat. Dip patties, one at a time, into chocolate by laying them on the tines of a fork and lowering the fork into the liquid. Let cool on waxed paper until set.
Recipe makes 28 patties
