Confessing that this peppermint patty recipe is an absolute obsession of mine would be an understatement. I absolutely love anything and everything with peppermint.
So to say these Homemade Peppermint Patties are a holiday treat made around this time of year . . . who am I kidding? I’m making these peppermint patties year-round for the rest of my life. // I kid you not.
I have no control when it comes to a peppermint patty; I eat them until I am sick to my stomach. Every single time.
There is a reason I never buy them, and there is a reason I should not have taught myself how to make these peppermint patties–a very good reason. But we will not dwell on my lack of self-control. Instead, let’s focus on this deliciousness.
REALLY IMPORTANT NOTE ON THIS PEPPERMINT PATTY RECIPE
- The trick is slowly adding the milk in with the powdered sugar.
- Add 1 tablespoon, mix, add another tablespoon, mix, repeat this until it is fully combined and you’ll get a little ball of delicious peppermint goodness out of it.
If you pour the milk all in once you’ll have a soupy peppermint mess. We do not want that.
Like, the fact I wrote that sentence two days ago and, who knows what distracted me, but I’m back here two days later to finish this post.
Before my brain took me who knows where, these peppermint patties came into existence after I quickly saw a video while scrolling through Facebook. // In another failed attempt of working. That recipe however had a can of condensed milk, and I wasn’t really feeling that. (Sorry to the person who created that video; I really can’t find it again to give credit!)
Cue moment to my ADD brain thinking how I could skip that canned milk and make them dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan friendly. Before I knew it, I was in the kitchen making them.
Dangerous guys, totally dangerous to have figured out that these are so easy to make.
Dairy-Free or Dairy version for these Homemade Peppermint Patties
- Milk – Use either regular milk or any dairy-free milk alternative that you’d like. We’ve tried almost all varieties and the results are the same.
- Chocolate – For the sake of easy you can use chocolate chips. If you’d like to have control over the sugar and ingredients in your chocolate check out our Gluten-Free Chocolate Recipe and the tips to making it at home.
It’s beginning to feel like Fall around here. It’s just about this time of year I get lazy. I sit under the blanket for a little bit longer than usual every morning, I binge watch just a little too many episodes on Netflix, and I bake.
While these peppermint patties are also no-bake, this just means they also perfectly fit into my ADD mindset. Quick, simple, and totally easy to make in 30 minutes from start to finish. Just like our junior mints recipe they are TOO EASY NOT to make them.
That fits the bill for me to be totally head over heels in love with these peppermint-chocolatey-sweet little patties. Just another quick treat to make for the holidays (or, in my case, throughout the entire year).
