Mint chocolate dessert recipe needed
This isn't really a dessert but Gourmet ran a recipe for "Peppermint Patties" I love them but I thought really? How much better can homemade be? OMG I made them for Christmas 3 years ago now if I do not make them for every holiday I face an angry mob? I do not temper the chocolate because to be frank I barely get them done when they disappear. So I don't bother.
This is an old recipe from a lady I worked with years ago. I've never made them, but I loved to eat hers when she brought them to work. I am copying the recipe the way she wrote it. Of course, you must make these at night!
