  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a bowl, combine milk and extract. Stir in 3-1/2 to 4 cups confectioners' sugar to form a stiff dough. Turn onto a surface sprinkled lightly with confectioners' sugar. Knead in enough remaining sugar to form a dough that is very stiff and no longer sticky. Shape into 1-in. balls. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Flatten into 1-1/2-in. circles. Let dry 1 hour. Turn and let dry 1 hour longer. Melt chocolate chips and shortening in a double boiler or microwave-safe bowl; cool slightly. Dip patties in chocolate mixture and place on waxed paper to harden.

I've been making these candies for years, ever since I learned how to do it as a child. This is probably one of my most favorite candies to make during the Christmas season. It's great to includ...

This recipe is simple and a crowd pleaser -- I've made it 3 times so far. The inside part does take time to dry as the recipe indicates -- it's better to increase the time to 2 hours per side i...

I made these with my daughter's Girl Scout troop for a bake sale - they had fun shaping the patties. For dipping, smaller, thicker patties work best. Use chopsticks to handle the patties - we us...

i just dipped these, and they look amazing. I used a wire egg dipper that is used to dye easter eggs, and it was so easy. I also used an offset spatula to slide them onto wax paper. I can't wait...

These turned out just fine....like any typical Pepermint Pattie recipe they are a bit tricky and messy, yet these turned out very tasty, I disguised my rather messy chocolate coating by decorati...

I had fun with this. I haden't made X-mas cookies and candies for a few years, so I decided to put together a few items this year. I've been in the kitchen all day, and you'd think this being th...

What a simple yet impressive holiday recipe. I tinted the filling green for Christmas, and I'll try pastels for Easter. Be careful not too add to much sugar or they will be a little dry.
