Inside Out Peppermint Patties

Peppermint Patties

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We found a really simple recipe for Inside-Out Peppermint Patties on Pinterest and decided to try it out for ourselves. The Peppermint Patties were a snap to put together and so delicious! We swapped peppermint essential oil for the peppermint extract called for in the original recipe and added a little green food coloring to make them festive for St. Patrick’s Day! They were a hit around the office, and we are sure you will enjoy them too!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound powdered sugar (about 4 1/4–4 3/4 cups)
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 7–14 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Using a mixer, gradually add the powdered sugar to the cream cheese.  Beat well until incorporated.
  2. Add peppermint essential oil, and combine well.
  3. Roll dough into teaspoon-size balls and place on baking sheet(s) lined with wax paper or parchment.  Create a small “bowl” or indention in each ball using a 1/4 teaspoon or your finger. Cover with plastic wrap and let firm up in the refrigerator for a few hours.
  4. When peppermints have firmed, melt chocolate according to package directions (microwave is fine).  Fill a piping bag or freezer bag with the corner snipped with the melted chocolate.  Fill each mini peppermint bowl/indention with chocolate and let cool.
  5. Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to serve.
