Recipe Wednesday: Peppermint Patty

Peppermint & Chocolate! Why is it that Peppermint always tastes so much better at Christmas time?! We love anything Peppermint. Not just the taste, but the of candy canes and Peppermint candy. In keeping that love alive,today we want to share with you our simple, festive homemade Peppermint Patties. Cool, refreshing, chocolaty and good!


















While shopping at Target recently, we came upon these jumbo Peppermint Marshmallows and just had to snag them. Like visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads, were the many possibilities these little, or BIG Peppermint morsels could produce.!


This is what they look like. They are big and not as thick as the traditional Marshmallow. They are swirled like a Peppermint candy. On the back of the package we found the recipe for Peppermint Patties. What you will need are basically three ingredients: Peppermint Marshmallows. Dipping chocolate. Crushed Peppermint candy for garnish.


Lay out a sheet of wax paper.Crush up a few Peppermint candies. Melt your chocolate.



Dip one marshmallow at a time, turning it in the melted chocolate to completely cover. Allow excess to drip off. Place on wax paper.


Sprinkle some crushed candy on top. Allow to set up completely before removing.


These make fun and festive neighbor gifts, teachers gifts, party favors or little extra goodies to stick in a themed gift basket you may gifting this year.


Make a simple little tag using card stock scrap and stamp on a greeting. Tie up with a little ribbon and it looks like a million!


Now that we have your mouth watering for some Peppermint and Chocolate, hurry out and pick up a bag or two of these Peppermint Marshmallow's before they are all gone! These are really good in hot chocolate too! We hope you are inspired!
