How to make Homemade Peppermint Patties
Ingredients you’ll need:
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Peppermint extract
- Icing/powdered sugar
- Chocolate: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
- Vegetable oil
To make these patties, simply add the condensed milk to a large mixing bowl, and stir in the peppermint extract. Add the icing sugar and mix until a thick dough forms.
Roll the dough into 0.5oz balls and place them onto a large baking tray lined with parchment or wax paper. You may need to lightly coat your hands in icing sugar when rolling. Press each dough ball into 1/4-inch thick circles. Freeze for 30 minutes.
Line a 12-hole muffin pan with muffin cases, and set aside.
Add the chocolate and vegetable oil to a large microwave-safe bowl, and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth.
Add a teaspoon of melted chocolate to each muffin case, then place a patty in the middle. Top with another teaspoon or two of chocolate. Tap the tray on top of the surface to level out the chocolate. Refrigerate until completely set.
Repeat with the rest of the patties.
TIP: If the bowl of melted chocolate cools too much and begins to set, return to the microwave and heat for 20 – 30 seconds.
This recipe yields 60 – 70 patties. If you’d like to make less, you can easily halve the recipe.
