Peppermint Patties

The original recipe came from allrecipes.com, I changed it quite a bit.

Peppermint Patties


3/4 c. sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
4 cups confectioners sugar
almond bark

In a large mixing bowl combine condensed milk and peppermint extract.  Beat in enough confections sugar a little at a time, to form a stiff dough that is no longer sticky.  Form into 1 inch balls and flatten into patties.  Put patties into freezer for about an hour.

Melt almond bark in a microwavable bowl.  Using two forks dip the patties into the almond bark, tap off excess chocolate and set on wax paper to set.

**I halved this recipe and used two silicone heart molds (found at Target in the $ spot).  I filled the molds half full then pressed in a small amount of the peppermint dough and then fill mold to the top.  Tap molds on the counter and then place in the refrigerator until set.

Our Review:  These really taste yummy!
