  • cups powdered sugar sifted
  • cup evaporated milk
  • cup light corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons refined coconut oil
  • 1 to 1½ teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 24 ounces dark chocolate finely chopped


  1. Using an electric mixer on low speed, beat together the powdered sugar, evaporated milk, corn syrup, coconut oil and peppermint extract until a soft dough forms. Divide the dough in two and form into disks, then wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Sprinkle a clean work surface with powdered sugar, place one of the disks on the surface, sprinkle the top with powdered sugar, and roll out to a ¼-inch thickness. Using a 1⅞-inch round cookie cutter, cut out circles and place on the prepared baking sheet. Gather scraps and re-roll and cut additional circles until no more dough remains. Repeat with the second disk of dough. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the rounds are firm, at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  3. When ready to dip the patties, place the finely chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl placed over a small saucepan of barely simmering water. Stir occasionally with a rubber spatula until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Remove from the heat.
  4. Working with one round at a time, dip into the chocolate using a fork and allow any excess chocolate to drip off before returning the patty to the parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with all of the peppermint rounds and allow to set at room temperature, about 1 hour. The homemade peppermint patties can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
