Cool Your Jets With These Homemade Peppermint Patty Candies

We all have fond memories of eating yummy candies when we were kids. I was always a chocolate and mint fan. When all the other kids were choosing Reeses’ cups or Hershey bars I was busy drooling over the York Peppermint patties. Those were, and still are, my absolute favorite candy. I always enjoyed buying the big pattie, eating half, and placing the other half in the freezer for later.

My favorite were the miniature York Peppermint patties that my grandma would keep in her candy dish. You can imagine my delight when I came across this very easy-to-make recipe for copycat York peppermint patties. At first, I thought the recipe was going to be super, duper hard to conquer, but it wasn’t.

I made up a double batch of these yummy patties to give away at Christmastime. I’ll simply freeze the overflow until I’m ready to sue them. Enjoy!
