Homemade Peppermint Patties
Well, crud. I lied. I thought we were done doing our Easter baking but when I saw the recipe for Creamy No Bake Mints over on For Such A Time As This we just had to make them. I love chocolate and mint together. And they are kind of Eater-y, right? I mean, I dyed the mint pink. That kind of counts. Right?
They were so easy to make and so, so delicious! My kids gobbled them up quickly!
* 3 ounces cream cheese
* 1/4 tsp. peppermint extract (or mint)
* red food coloring
* 4 1/4 to 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Please the cream cheese, mint extract and food color in a mixer bowl and beat until smooth.
Gradually add the powdered sugar and mix until mixture becomes very stiff.
Shape into 3/4 inch balls and flatten to form patties.
We coated ours in melted chocolate =o)
Store tightly covered in the refrigerator.
