Homemade Peppermint Patties!
- 2 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
- 2 Tablespoons softened butter
- 1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
- 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- Crushed peppermint candies
- Chocolate almond bark
- In a large mixing bowl, combine your cream, butter, lemon juice, vanilla, and peppermint extracts and mix well using a hand mixer
- Mix in one cup of your powdered sugar at a time until you have a thick dough like texture
- Use your hands, roll into a ball, and then use a rolling pin to roll out your Peppermint filling to be about 3/8" inch thick (doesn't need to be exact but you do want to keep it rather thick)
- Use a small circle cookie cutter to cut out your shapes and freeze them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet for an hour or so
- Before you remove them from the freezer, heat your almond bark in a large microwave safe bowl for 90 seconds, stir, and reheat in 15 second intervals until melted
- Use a slotted chocolate spoon to lift and dip your peppermint patties into the melted chocolate, let any excess chocolate drop off, and place back on your parchment paper
- Immediately top with crushed peppermint and let set for 30 minutes
