I love peppermint patties…but not the store bought kind with a ton of random additives. This is a super easy recipe and is AMAZING!  My only problem is not eating the entire batch in one sitting;)

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, divided
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure peppermint extract (can use up to 1 teaspoon to increase minty flavor)
  • 1  Tablespoon vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 Tablespoon butter
  • Baker’s Real Milk Chocolate Dipping Chocolate, 7 oz container
 Directions:
  • Beat 2 1/4 cups powdered sugar with corn syrup, water, peppermint extract, shortening, butter and a pinch of salt using an electric mixer at medium speed until just combined.
  • Knead on a work surface dusted with remaining 1/4 cup confectioners sugar until smooth.
  • Roll out and cut into circles with a small biscuit cutter.
  • Place circles onto a cookie sheet and freeze for 30 minutes.
  • Melt dipping chocolate and dip frozen patties!
  • You can place the peppermint patties into the fridge to set the chocolate faster or leave on countertop.
  • I store mine in a sealed container in the fridge.

*For a fun variation, you can tint the dough different colors! I once made orange and blue peppermint patties before a Gator football game.  Think of all the fun you can have:)
