First on the First, Peppermint Patties
Recipe type: Snack, Dessert
Total time: 
Serves: 30
Delicious minty treats all covered in chocolate... mmmm
  • 14 ounces (1 can) of sweetened condensed milk
  • 6 cups icing sugar (aka powdered sugar/confectioners sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon peppermint extract
  • 3 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening, butter, or margarine
  1. In the bowl of your mixer, beat together sweetened condensed milk, 3 cups of icing sugar, and the peppermint extract. Continue to add the rest of the icing sugar, ½ a cup at a time, until the dough is stiff and easy to handle.
  2. Using your hands, or a cookie scoop, scoop 1-inch pieces of dough and roll them into balls, placing on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  3. Flatten all your balls to discs, and place in the freezer to chill for about 30 minutes, or until you're ready cover in chocolate.
  4. After 30 minutes, melt the chocolate and shortening in a heatproof and microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, then remove it and stir. Place it back in the microwave and repeat microwaving in 30 seconds increments, stirring after each 30 seconds, until the chocolate has completely melted and is smooth.
  5. Remove the chilled patties from the freezer and place them on the counter next to melted chocolate. Place a large piece of wax paper next to the melted chocolate.
  6. Place one patty on top of a fork and dip into the chocolate. Using another fork, coat the patty completely and carefully place it onto the wax paper. Repeat with the remaining patties.
  7. Put your patties into your freezer, and, once frozen through, put into a sealed container, store in the fridge or freezer, and eat at any time of the day or night!
