• Dip solid white centers into melted chocolate with a fork, flip to coat both sides. Tap fork firmly on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.

This is a simple homemade candy recipe – no thermometer required! If you like peppermint patties (I sure do!) you know they are all about the cool peppermint middle; the chocolate is superfluous (I cannot believe I just wrote that!) Traditionally made with dark chocolate to compliment the strong taste of peppermint, no one will know if you swap out to milk chocolate if that is your preference.
