  1. Mixing the Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, combine powdered sugar, softened butter, condensed milk, peppermint extract, and a few drops of vanilla essence. Stir the mixture until it forms a dough.
  2. Shaping the Patties: Apply powdered sugar to your hands and work surface. Make the dough into small balls, then flatten each ball into a patty shape, about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Chilling: Place the patties on a baking sheet, then place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to firm up.
  4. Melting Chocolate: Melt the chocolate while the patties are chilling. Place the chopped dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl over simmering water, or you can melt dark chocolates in the microwave.
  5. Coating the Patties: Once the patties are firm, dip each patty into the melted dark chocolate. Avoid excess chocolate by tapping them with a fork or spoon. Then place each chocolate-coated patty onto a baking sheet. Return the baking sheet to the refrigerator for another 15-20 minutes to set the chocolate on the patties. Once the chocolate has hardened, your homemade Peppermint Patties are ready to be enjoyed!
