How To Make Peppermint Patties

To make these Christmasy peppermint patties, a soft and creamy peppermint center is coated with rich dark chocolate and topped with colorful sprinkles.

Preparation: 30 minutes
Cooking: 1 minute
Total: 31 minutes



  • ¾cupsweetened condensed milk
  • 1tsppeppermint extract,or more to taste
  • tspvanilla extract
  • 4cupspowdered sugar,plus extra for sprinkling
  • 3cupssemisweet chocolate chips
  • 2tspshortening
  • ½cupholiday sprinkles


  1. Place the condensed milk, peppermint extract and vanilla extract in the bowl of a mixer. Add half of the powered sugar and beat with a mixer on low speed. Gradually add the remaining powdered sugar. Beat until a smooth dough forms.

  2. Sprinkle powdered sugar over a piece of parchment paper. Place the peppermint dough on the parchment and sprinkle powdered sugar over the top. Roll into a ½-inch thick circle.

  3. Using a 1 or 1 ½ inch round cookie cutter, cut out circles from the dough. If the dough does not cut easily, simply place it in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up, then try again.

  4. Transfer the peppermint rounds to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover and freeze for 10 to 15 minutes.

  5. Place the chocolate and shortening in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Cook at 30-second intervals until melted, stirring occasionally.

  6. Using a fork, dip the patties one by one in the chocolate, then place on a piece of parchment. Add sprinkles immediately. Let cool until set, then serve. Store in the refrigerator.
