“These cool peppermint patties are made with mashed potatoes.” - by Wendy MacLeod
Original recipe yields 4 dozen
- In a large bowl, mix together the potatoes, salt, butter, and peppermint extract. Gradually mix in confectioners' sugar; mix in enough to make a workable dough, between 6 and 8 cups.
- Knead slightly, and roll into cherry-size balls. Flatten balls to form patties. Arrange on sheets of wax paper, and allow to dry overnight.
- Place chocolate and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth. Dip patties in melted chocolate, and let cool on wax paper.

"Great recipe! Quick and the kids love it. I didn't dry them overnight I put them in the freezer until firm then dipped them. Also made them with lemon very good...." See more"
"I have some tips for all of you who are frustrated with them melting. Freeze them for about an hour or overnight before you dip them and take them out ONLY when you're ready to do it! This will prod..." See moreuce a much cleaner, prettier patty. I've never used this recipe here, but I have my own personal recipe I use that turns out every time. Use white almond bark and a rasberry flavoring for Valentine's Day or as a nice color ensemble with the chocolate/mint patties in a holiday basket! And I gave this 5 stars because of the people that followed the recipe as directed, it turned out great for them. I don't believe in giving someone a bad review just because I messed it up."
