Oh, double yum!!!! I may have to experiment with this one, as I am a dark chocolate/mint fiend. These sound wonderful for my Christmas goodie plates that we take to the neighbors. Thanks!

11 yr.old thread. wow. Terry, did you make these?

How do you even find a thread 11 years old. There must be a way to search stuff I never learned.

I went to the Recipe sticky and in the upper, right-hand corner is a search box, in which I typed 'peppermint patties' - the recipe was in the results.

I made these this past weekend and very pleased with the result. I used half semi-sweet chips and half dark choc chips. One note, however...

Making 1-inch balls per the instructions, this recipe only makes 30 patties--half the 5 doz the recipe says. Maye the 5 doz yield is for a double recipe? I used a 1" disher, leveled off, in making the drops. The 2 C of choc chips was plenty for the dipping. I am keeping them in the fridge--they are a bit soft at room temp. I put them in the fridge on a cookie sheet and then stacked them in a bowl after they were chilled so they wouldn't stick together. ~ pen
