Peppermint Patties Recipe





These Peppermint Patties are a new favourite at our Christmas Eve gathering every year.  Last year I found this recipe somewhere and jotted it down in my recipe book to make.  I made up a batch last year for gifts and for the party and they were a real hit!  

So of course this year I had to make some more and I figured I would share the recipe after I posted a photo on Facebook and had several requests for the recipe.  


Peppermint Patties Recipe



4 + Cups Icing Sugar
2 Egg Whites
5-8 Drops Peppermint Oil
1 TBSP water
2 blocks Semi-Sweet Bakers Chocolate


Directions


Combine Icing sugar, egg whites, peppermint oil and water.  Mix with a hand mixer until a thick dough comes together adding more icing sugar or water to thicken or combine as needed.  It should be a nice thick dough. 

On a clean dry surface, roll out chunks of the dough using more icing sugar to reduce sticking to the rolling pin or surface. Use a small circle cookie cutter to cut out the shapes of the patties and place them onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  

**Note: If you don't have a circle cookie cutter you can alternatively just pull off small chunks of the dough, roll them into a ball and flatten.  




Let the patties dry out on the baking sheet over night. 

Once dried out, melt bakers chocolate in a double boiler and let cool slightly.  You don't want to dip the patties right into super hot chocolate or else they will start to melt a little themselves. Once slightly cooled, dip each patty into the chocolate, using a fork tap off the extra chocolate.  Place each patty back onto the parchment paper and place the tray into the fridge to help the chocolate set. 


 

Once set they can be put into packaging and placed into gifts with out needing refrigeration which is always nice!




Enjoy!
