DIY Peppermint Patties: A Pin Test

Months and months ago I pinned this scrumptious little recipe to my Christmas board. Just now got around to making it. Totally easy and tasty! Pinterest success!

INGREDIENTS:
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
- 1 lb (roughly!) powdered sugar
- 2 splashes of milk
- Chocolate chips

Mix well and roll into the desired shape!

The source I pinned this from melted the chocolate and then squeezed it back into a pile on a little mint patty. This seemed like redundant, unnecessary work to me. Just roll the minty dough into a ball and press and upside down chocolate chip into it. No messy melting and all the yumminess!

Also, I used a bit of milk because it was just taking way too long to mash the cream cheese and sugar together perfectly. The milk definitely sped up the mixing process.

** You will definitely want to use an electric mixer although be prepared to have the dough glob around the beater. It was crazy.
