  • 4 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1/3 cup corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 4 or 5 drops peppermint extract
  • 8 ounces dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening


  • Sift confectioners sugar. 
  • In a medium-sized bowl add confectioner's sugar, corn syrup, butter, and peppermint extract.   Blend with a mixer until smooth. 
  • Portion the mint candy into bite-sized balls.   Refrigerate for about 20 minutes.   When you ready do dip the patties press them with the bottom of a glass.   
  • In a double boiler melt the chocolate and shortening.   If you do not want to use vegetable shortening you may substitute coconut oil or butter.  Vegetable shortening gives the best results.  
  • Drop the peppermint patties into the melted chocolate, flip over, and then place the dipped peppermint patties on either a silpat mat or waxed paper to dry.
