Ok, when the idea of Peppermint Patties first crossed my mind I was not enticed. “Chocolate and mint?” I said, “That sounds like toothpaste, not food.”
Well, a few weeks later, the idea lingered, gnawingly and I decided I just had to make those Peppermint Patties. So I did. And they are good. Even to someone who does not care for the idea of chocolate and mint. Someone who is Jewish and does not celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Likes them. And ate too many.
Makes about 12 patties
My husband doesn’t like mint and chocolate either. And he ate plenty of my little Peppermint Patties, scarfing them down after work the other day. What we like about these gluten free candies is that they melt in your mouth. The children liked them too, eating their share.
Happy Saint Patty’s Day to all in every way!
