remindful of wintertime icy grip.  So appropo
to celebrate National Peppermint Patty Day.  Whether candied, coffee or hot chocolate minty tingle…or hand-cut marshmallows…
The Menu Shoppe has it covered…
great “finds”…
Peppermint Patties
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
4 cups confectioners’ sugar
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening
In a large mixing bowl, combine condensed milk and peppermint extract. Beat in enough confectioners’ sugar, a little at a time, to form a stiff dough that is no longer sticky. Form into 1 inch balls, then place on waxed paper and flatten with fingers to form patties. Let patties dry at room temperature two hours, turning once.  In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate with shortening, stirring often. Remove from heat. Dip patties, one at a time, into chocolate by laying them on the tines of a fork and lowering the fork into the liquid. Cool on waxed paper until set.
Peppermint Patty Coffee
Peppermint entwined with savory slow roasted coffee beans makes for a vibrant wintery blast of icy mint flavored java.
