These Homemade Peppermint Patties Are Creamy And Delicious

Dinner at the Zoo

If you’re a fan of York Peppermint Patties, you need to check out this recipe for a homemade version of the cool candies from Dinner At The Zoo. It brings the chocolatey, minty treat to a whole new level. When you add some red, white and green sprinkles, it makes them all the more perfect for the holidays.

You can use a cookie cutter to make sure they’re perfectly round, just like the candy. In order to make sure the centers are solid, you’ll want to freeze them a bit before coating them in chocolate. Did we mention these are a no-bake dessert?

Meanwhile, over on Butter With a Side of Bread, the bloggers promise that their copycat version of York Peppermint Patties is better than the original because the patties are softer and have an even better flavor.

They can be ready in less than an hour, so they’re perfect for when you need a last-minute treat for a party or a gift made with love. The bloggers recommend using a Winton dipping tool to dip the centers in chocolate.

Looking for even more homemade recipes for your favorite candies? Although Peeps are most popular around Easter, there’s no law saying you have to wait until spring to enjoy the adorable marshmallow chicks.

Check out this recipe to make your own, and you could even use red and green coloring to make them a little more appropriate for the winter holidays. Or you could turn them into little snowmen!

How about some colorful and festive candy cane bark? Made with pistachios and cranberries, it incorporates all your favorite holiday flavors. If pistachios are not your thing, feel free to use the nut of your choice. Blogger Jo Cooks notes that it’s a great recipe for getting kids involved in the kitchen, too.
