Easy Homemade Peppermint Patties
I love peppermint patties and imagine my delight many ago when I realized you could actually make these! I mean I could actually make these. Full disclosure, I still love the ones sold in silver, but these! Nothing quite says love like a homemade treat and peppermint patties are right up there as worthy of a holiday gift. (I wouldn’t mind getting these either, just saying…..) I’d even say these are a great choice for bringing to your cookie exchange aka cookie swap this year.
Like most sweets, I got my love for sweets from my mom. That lady loves to cook, bake and entertain. This isn’t her recipe but seriously.. Mom, if you’re reading this hint hint wink wink.
Oh, the best part…. NO BAKE!
Homemade Peppermint Patties
- 3 3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
- 1 cup Powdered Sugar (for kneading)
- 5tbsp + 1tsp Evaporated Milk
- 5tbsp + 1tsp Corn Syrup
- 1 tsp Peppermint Extract
- 1 lb Semi Sweet Chocolate
- 1 1/3 tsp Coconut Oil
- Crushed Peppermint Candies (Optional for Topping)
In a large bowl mix together sugar, milk, syrup, coconut oil.
Once dough forms, sprinkle 1 cup powdered sugar on clean counter and place dough on top.
Gently knead the dough until all the powdered sugar is goine and the dough is no longer sticky.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 3 hours minimum. Overnight is best.
Once dough is chilled, roll out the dough with a rolling pin to approx 1/4 thickness.
Use cookie cutter of choice (I use a juice cup) to cut out circles and place on parchment paper.
Melt chocolate in Microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals or over doulble boiler on stove. Stirring until completely melted.
Using a fork, gently dip patties into melted chocolate until completely covered. Use a butter knife to help slide covered pattie back onto the parchment paper.
Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies, let sit while chocolate hardens.
Store in airtight container, parchment paper in between layers.
If you happen to freeze these, let me know how they do after defrosted. Honestly, i’ve never had a single one leftover so I can’t tell you that.
