Tuesday's Treats ~ Peppermint Patties

Do you remember, back in the day, that commercial for York Peppermint Patties? The actors would say something like "When I eat a York Peppermint Patty...I feel the wind blowing through my hair..." ??

Or something like that.

Awhile ago I came across a blog that featured these delightful treats, and for the life of me I can't recall where I saw it. I would love to give credit where credit is due, but in this case I can't.



You'll Need:
1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon of peppermint extract
6 cups of powdered sugar, plus extra for kneading
1 1/2 lbs of meltable chocolate

Step One:
Mix condensed milk and peppermint extract. Add in 6 cups of powdered sugar. Beat on low until blended.

Step Two:
Turn mixture onto a surface sprinkled with powdered sugar. Knead lightly to form a smooth ball. Shape into 1 inch balls. Flatten.

Step Three:
Let dry for 1 hour. Flip, and dry for another hour. Dip in melted chocolate. Refrigerate to set.

Easy peasy!

  3. York Peppermint Patties were one of my mom's favorite treats! She would buy the big patty, and NOT SHARE! These do sound super easy, but if I made them, I doubt mine will look as pretty as the ones in the photo. ;)

    Thanks for dropping by Lemon Drop Pie!

  5. You say easy peasy, and I say yeah right! Did you actually make the ones that are in the picture? They look so good! Mine would turn out looking like something a 5 year old had made.
