I just made a half batch of these, testing recipes for the one closest to York Peppermint Patties, which is my favorite candy. I needen't look any farther. I just blew up my stand mixer making dog biscuits, so I was hesitant to make a full batch with my little hand mixer, thinking the filling might be too stiff for it to handle. It was perfect. I make my own extracts and these are DELICIOUS using peppermint from my garden. I'm going to make a btch of peppermint easter eggs to send to my son, who is also a YPP maven. Can't wait to get his response. I hand dipped the patties and got the semisweet chocolate coating a little too thick on some of them. Next time I'm going to combine 2/3 semisweet with 1/3 milk chocolate to cut the flavor a bit. I will say, these are GREAT and as easy as can be. I had them mixed, kneaded, pinched onto cookie sheets and pressed in less than 30 minutes. Go for it...they're delicious.
