Preparation Time: 45 mins

Cook: 10 mins

Additional: 2 hrs

Servings: 28


  • 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons shortening


Step 1.
In a large mixing bowl, combine condensed milk and peppermint extract. Beat in enough confectioners’ sugar, a little at a time, to form a stiff dough that is no longer sticky. Form into 1 inch balls, then place on waxed paper and flatten with fingers to form patties. Let patties dry at room temperature for two hours, turning once.

Step 2.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate with shortening, stirring often. Remove from heat. Dip patties, one at a time, into chocolate by laying them on the tines of a fork and lowering the fork into the liquid. Let cool on waxed paper until set.
