Creamy Peppermint Patties
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + chilling
Makesabout 8 dozen
These are really good. I did increase the peppermint to 2.5 tsp. and had to increase the chocolate by another cup. In order for the candy to hold together, I really had to manipulate each pattie. I squeezed each one back and forth in my hands several times then made a ball and rolled it a few times in my hands, then pressed them in between my hands to make the pattie and if they cracked around the edges I just smoothed them with my finger. I then froze them before dipping. They turned out beautiful and by being froze I had no problem dipping them. But, I would suggest having an extra person to help it does take a while for one person.
These are awesome! I have been making them for years. My kids love them too.
I am making these now and could use some advise. Mine seem really dry. I don't think I can shape them. What can I do to make this easier to handle? Add water? milk? Help?
These are phenominal. Amazing. Even my chocolate haters love them. I tweaked the recipe a bit to make my life easier though. Instead of rolling balls, I made three logs, froze them for a few hours. Then I sliced them to my desired thickness and solidly froze the patties. When it came time to coat I used a trick my sister taught me. I took the melted chocolate off the heat source and let it cool down a bit. It made the coating process a snap. I have requests for these every year.
I make these often for holidays. They can also be frozen. Very easy to prepare and they are delectable!
These are delicious! I also had to double the chocolate, but had no problems with them falling apart. I used a fork to dip them.
I make these every year at Christmas, sometimes I use cookie cutters to make differnet shapes. Have to agree with the other comments reagrding coating process, I usually freeze before coating but havent really perfected a surefire way yet. Still, these are really yummy and easy to make!
These are good, but I always need more chocolate chips and shortening to coat all the wafers. I also reheat the chocolate if it cools down too much.
this is so easy to make...it taste like a york peppermint patty...wow
It's almost impossible to "dip" these, Instead I roll them, flatten them onto wax paper, then I put the cookie sheet in the freezer. Then I take an offset spatula and spread the choc. onto the top side, then I remove from freezer, flip them over and do the same. Yes it's work but imo these cannot be "dipped" no matter what you do, they just tend to fall apart.diane
