Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 - 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp softened butter
  • 2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 2 tbsp cream
  • 8 - 12 oz bakers chocolate melting wafers, or chocolate chips

Instructions

  • In a medium sized mixing bowl mix together butter, cream, peppermint extract, and confectioner's sugar. Mixture should be soft and pliable but not sticky.
  • Roll into a long 1 inch - 1 1/2 inch log and wrap in plastic wrap. Put long in a paper towel tube to help keep it's shape. Chill in fridge for at least an hour.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and remove log from plastic wrap and cut into rounds about a 1/4 inch thick. Place rounds on baking tray and freeze in freezer until chocolate is ready.
  • Heat a small sauce pan on the stove with water. Add chocolate to a bowl that covers the top of the pan but does not touch the water. As the water boils, melt the chocolate, stirring often.
  • Remove rounds from freezer and with a fork or dipping tools, dip rounds one at a time, into the chocolate and place back on parchment paper. Return tray to freezer for 10 minutes or until the chocolate has set.
  • Remove candies from parchment paper and enjoy!
