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
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.
