Halloween Peppermint Patties

I love mints of all kinds and these are a huge weakness for me. I got these from a cooking show a few years ago. They are soooo easy and festive.

How to Make Halloween Peppermint Patties


  1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

    Using a mixer (preferably with a paddle attachment but a regular mixer will work) combine powdered sugar, egg white product, water, peppermint, and food coloring. Mix on low speed until smooth.
  2. Increase speed to high and beat until mixture forms a stiff dough. If it gets too stiff, add extra water at 1/2 teaspoon at a time until it smooths out. Put mixture on a work surface dusted with powdered sugar and roll into a 12 inch log about 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Slice log into 1/4 to 1/2 inch pieces, form them into balls and flatten into disks. Arrange in single layers on baking sheets. Let dry, uncovered for 3 hours.
  3. Put chocolate and vegetable oil in a small bowl and set it over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir until the chocolate is smooth and melted. Be careful not to burn. Dip 1 half of the candy into melted chocolate and return to parchment paper until chocolate sets. About 3 hours.
