I love these mints. If the patties don't thicken don't give up just keep adding powdered sugar and kneading. You won't be disappointed
This was quite a disaster. I was looking for a good mint patty recipe with a firm filling, however even after FREEZING the mint filling, it was not firm enough to form a ball or a patty for that matter. So because I did not want to waste all of the expensive ingredients, I dropped the filling by spoonfuls onto wax paper and drizzled melted chocolate on top. I couldn't even peel them off the wax paper they were so sticky! I tasted of one and ended up throwing the rest away as they were not at all presentable.
The mesurements on this recipe is just not right. I wish I had read he review before I made it. it was just like soup & I added 1 1/2 to 2 more cups of conf. sugar & still not solid enough.
So I was nervous about making this recipe after reading reviews but it's the only mint one I could find so I went for it. I did 2 C. pwd sugar, 1/3 c. margarine, 1 TBS corn syrup(or a tad more) and a couple drops peppermint. It has turned out thick and yummy so far, we'll see how the rest goes.
The mint center filling didn't thicken enough to make patties, so I spread the mixture on a cookie sheet and poored melted chocolate on top and then cut them up.
This did not turn out at all. I did everything exactly as instructed, but even after refrigerating over 24 hours these still were runny. I added three more cups powdered sugar and they still won't firm up enough to do anything with. I'm afraid I will have to throw the entire thing away.
very soupy. after reading other reviews, I was prepared to add lots of powdered sugar. Even after 3 extra cups of powdered sugar it was still not the right texture. It was entirely too grainy. I do NOT recommend this recipe!
