One of my favorite flavor combinations is chocolate mint- York...Junior Mints...Girl Scout Thin Mints...any brand really.
So why I only make homemade peppermint patties during the holidays is beyond me! They should be a treat all year long but perhaps it's that chocolate/mint is everywhere during the holidays.
I've tried a few different recipes over the years and have made some tweaks each time. Here is the process I used this year that worked so fantastic!
