Peppermint Patties Recipe

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1½ teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 pound chocolate almond bark
  • Optional: Sprinkles for decoration

Directions

  • In a large bowl, mix together the sweetened condensed milk and peppermint extract.
  • Gradually mix in the powdered sugar with an electric mixer until a stiff, non-sticky dough forms.
  • Roll the dough into balls and place them on a parchment-lined tray. Flatten each ball into a thick disc shape (about 2 inches in diameter and ¼ inch thick).
  • Freeze the patties for about an hour.
  • Melt the chocolate almond bark in the microwave in 30-second intervals until smooth.
  • Dip each peppermint patty into the melted chocolate, gently shaking off any excess.
  • Place the dipped patties back onto the parchment paper. If using sprinkles, add them immediately before the chocolate sets.
  • Allow the chocolate to harden and enjoy your homemade peppermint patties!

Tips

  • You can make these patties large or small, depending on your preference.
  • The chocolate hardens quickly, so be ready to add any decorations right after dipping.
  • Freeze the patties before dipping to ensure they don’t melt in the warm chocolate.
  • Store in the fridge until serving to keep them firm.
