Gosh, I am of the opinion that ANY time of year is the right time for peppermint patties… but then again, I am from Pennsylvania originally. Still, there is something about chocolate and peppermint together that just screams Christmastime!
If you ever wanted to make your very own peppermint patties, look no further than my trusty recipe.
1 8oz pack cream cheese 2lb powdered sugar 2 tsp mint extract 2 C chocolate chips 1 T shortening
Bring the cream cheese to room temperature to make it easy to work with. Pour in the mint extract. Then simply combine it with the powdered sugar until it is the consistency of cookie dough.
