Peppermint Patties

Ingredients:
2 1/4 c. confectioners sugar
1 1/2 tbsp. light corn syrup
1 1/2 tbsp. water
4-6 drops of essential peppermint oil
1 tbsp. coconut oil
1/4 c. confectioners sugar for rolling/kneading
1 large bar of dark chocolate for melting

Directions:

  1. Combine the confectioners sugar, corn syrup, water, peppermint oil and coconut oil.
  2. Sprinkle some confectioner’s sugar on your counter top and knead the dough until smooth. Roll it out between to pieces of parchment paper and place in the refrigerator to firm up.
  3. After about 20 minutes, peel off one side of the parchment and sprinkle the dough with some sugar. Repeat on the other side. Cut out one-inch rounds and set aside… preferably back in the fridge to keep them firm. I used a shot glass as a cookie cutter. It was the perfect size.
  4. Next melt your chocolate using a double boiler.
  5. Take the chocolate off the heat and allow it to cool to 80 degrees and then put it back on the heat until it reaches 88-91 degrees.
  6. Cool the chocolate slightly before dipping each peppermint round in. Allow excess chocolate to drip off and then place on a sheet of parchment.
  7. Allow them to set in the fridge until the chocolate is firm and then eat them.
