Homemade Peppermint Patties are so easy to make and they are so good! This classic treat is a perfect gift from the kitchen.
I can’t believe it is already our final Holiday Progressive Dinner but here we are at week 7! This week’s theme is gifts from your kitchen. My sister was the inspiration for these Peppermint Patties. She makes them every year and they are one of my favorite treats. There have even been some years where she has tucked some into my Christmas gift!
Here are some of the recipes that I’ve made using my Silpat and Roul’Pat:
The Roul’Pat is covered with silicone on both sides making it a non-stick countertop workstation that won’t slide while you are working. It is perfect for kneading and rolling out dough or pie crust, as well as working with fondant, chocolate and sugar. It is safe in the temperature range of -40°F to 480°F so it can go in the oven! The Roul’Pat can also be used for hobbies or crafts like painting, gluing or working with modeling clay! I used it to roll out these peppermint patties. I have a full-size Roul’Pat that measures 16 1/2 x 24 1/2.
The Silpat is a non-stick baking mat that provides even heat transfer to baked goods with no greasing required! It is effective in temperatures from -40°F to 480°F or -40°C to 280°C. The non-stick surface is also great for putting chocolate dipped items on it, like these peppermint patties, rather than putting them on parchment. I have the half sized Silpat that measures 11 5/8 x 16 1/2 and you can enter to win one below!
