How to make a peppermint patty recipe with no corn syrup:

First, line a large sheet pan with wax paper and set it aside. After that, grab your hand mixer.

Now, combine the powdered sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and peppermint extract in a medium mixing bowl.

Next, dust a clean counter-top with powdered sugar. Dump the lump of filling onto the counter.

Use a rolling pin to roll out the mixture to 1/4-inch thickness. Afterward, use a biscuit cutter cut the filling into disk shaped patties.

Transfer the patties to your lined sheet pan. Place the pan into your fridge to chill for about 45-minutes.

Then, once the filling has set, grab a heat safe mixing bowl. Add the coconut oil and chocolate to the bowl.

The filling shaped into disks and transferred to a lined sheet pan.

Using your microwave, melt the chocolate and oil mixture on the high heat setting.

Just be sure to stir the ingredients every 10-20 seconds. Once the chocolate has melted, it’s time to dip the patties.

Kim used a fork to dip each peppermint patty into the chocolate. Afterward, she placed the patties back on the lined sheet pan.

When all the patties have been dipped, transfer them back to your fridge to chill for about 60-minutes. Last, remove them the fridge and serve! That’s it, your peppermint patty recipe is done.

Kim and I hope you enjoy them and wish you all the best this holiday season 🙂
