Peppermint Patties

Prep Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr
Course: Candy
Servings: 36 patties
Author: Basil and Bubbly

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp softened salted butter
  • 2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 2 1/2 tbsp cream
  • 12 oz Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers

Instructions

  • Mix powdered sugar, butter, peppermint extract, and cream in a large bowl on low.
  • Gradually increase the speed up to medium as the sugar becomes more incorporated and less likely to blow up in your face.
  • Once the candy is completely combined ( it will have a very dough-like look to it ), remove from the bowl and shape into a log with approximately a 1" diameter.
  • Wrap the log in parchment paper, and freeze for 30 minutes, or until dough is very firm.
  • Remove from freezer, unwrap, and cut the log into 1/4" slices.
  • Place the slices on a parchment lined cookie sheet, and freeze for another 30 minutes.
  • Melt the chocolate wafers according to the directions on the package, and dip each mint candy slice into the melted chocolate. Allow the dipped chocolates to set on the parchment lined cookies sheet for easy removal.

Notes

Adapted from http://www.ohnuts.com/blog/homemade-peppermint-patties-recipe-2/
If your melting chocolate does not include melting directions, melt them as follows:
Place the wafers in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave for 1 minute, then stir. Microwave for 30 seconds, and stir again. Repeat until all wafers are melted.
