Homemade Peppermint Patties are so simple to make, you’ll never need to buy them again. Perfectly cool peppermint center encased in decadent dark chocolate.
On the 3rd Day of Sugar my true love game to me . . . Homemade Peppermint Patties
I think I have secretly loved York Peppermint patties for as long as I can remember. They’ve also been on my list of things to try making but I thought they might be a little tricky so I kept putting it off. Turns out I was wrong. They are so simple to make and taste just like a York . . .maybe even better.
In addition to being completely fabulous, you will “wow” anyone you share these with. I taught a cooking class in my ward last month and these were one of the things I taught. All the ladies were beyond impressed and agreed they were better than store bought.
The creamy white minty center is drenched in yummy dark chocolate and then put in the fridge to then chilled. So, so delicious! We liked them best chilled rather than at room temp. Don’t let the whole dipping thing scare you away, it’s a lot easier than you think. Just make sure you tap your fork several times to get the excess chocolate off and air bubbles out. Don’t worry if yours don’t look perfect, that’s the beauty of homemade candy. . .every piece is unique.
These would make a great neighbor gift. You can put some in a cellophane bag or in a fun candy box or tin. I’ve seen some really cute ones at Hobby Lobby.
