Homemade Peppermint Patties

My husband loves peppermint patties and instead of buying them I figured I would try my hand at making them. They came out amazing!

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon peppermint extract
5 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoon shortening

mix together 2 cups of the powdered sugar, peppermint extract and condensed milk. Keep adding 1/2 cup powdered at a time until all 5 1/2 cups are added.

should look like this

 roll into balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheets (pat down so they are somewhat flat). Chill in the freezer for no more than 30 minutes.

melt the shortening and chocolate chips together until smooth

like this

once done freezing place on a fork and coat with the chocolate and then place back on the cookie sheet. Place in refrigerator until set.



  1. You are killing me. I love peppermint patties! I'll have to remember this for a special occasion!

  2. TORTURE!!! HA HA I love making these, and normally stick to ONLY making them around Christmas otherwise I really would be huge!

  3. I love peppermint patties. I have pinned a few recipes, but I haven't tried them yet. This recipe looked pretty easy. I like easy. :)
