Thumbs up Homemade Peppermint Patties

My husband loves York brand Peppermint Patty candies.
The other day I saw on one of these newfangled social media what-evers,
a recipe, well I think that it's more like a technique myself, for
homemade Peppermint Patties
Ok, I'm game.

The recipe said that the yield was 50 pieces, I got 67

Pretty straight forward:

3 C. Powdered or Confectioners Sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Peppermint Extract
1/2 C. Sweetened Condensed Milk
8 oz. Dipping or Candy making Chocolate, like Ghiraradelli Dark Melting Waffers or any type of Chocolate you prefer with a bit of vegetable oil stirred in

Mix the 1st three ingredients together in a large bowl,
until it forms a stiff dough
(I used my KA w/the dough hook attachment-much easier )
Roll out, on a surface dusted with more powdered sugar, 1/4 thick
Cut out 1" rounds
(any bigger and they won't dip nicely,oh, and I used the top off of a discarded aspirin bottle, approx. 1 inch)
Place on a tray lined with waxed paper, chill for 30 minutes
Working in batches,
Dip in melted waffers or chocolate w/oil
Place back on the tray
Chill again for 30 minutes
DEVOUR!

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the `fridge.

The whole house smelled so good, and I was SOOO sticky all over

Thanks for posting this recipe. I've made something similar in the past but the filling was a little different using sugar, butter, cream and oil instead of evaporated milk. The paste gets rolled and chilled, then sliced before coating. I wonder if the evaporated milk gives a better flavor?


If you are going to roll them out - why not just cut in squares?

Interesting... Easier and less waste/handling?

Those look wonderful and sound pretty easy. Thanks for sharing, kgirl! Sharing this with my daughter - it sounds like a fun goodie for us to try out for Christmas.

Janet, the texture it different from the real thing, not as, well gritty nor runny. At times, York Peppermint Patty is 'off', maybe old, I don't know. But this recipe is a wonderful Peppermint pattie.
And what a great idea, roll the dough into a log and simply slice them!
Just my opinion, but square patties wouldn't so it for me

... And yes Ross, less waste, although the last bit that I could roll & cut, I made into a bon bon if you will

I thought so too Ross, but the ratio of middle to outside was off. I hand formed that bon bon with the leftover scrapes.
Maybe if it was double-dipped?
