I have been looking for a real good reason to make peppermint patties again, and what better opportunity than Valentine’s Day. These patties are the perfect combination of oh-so-minty and deliciously-creamy, and I couldn’t resist turning them into a sweet Valentine’s treat. After I formed and pressed the prepared patty, I cut them with a 2″ heart-shaped cookie cutter. They sat in the fridge for about an hour before I dipped half of them into melted dark chocolate and the others into Wilton pink candy melts. A few sprinkles (gotta have sprinkles!) and there you have it!
The coconut bites are way too easy. I purchased a 1/2 lb. of coconut dough at my local cake & candy supply shop, scooped it into small balls and dipped them into melted chocolate. They taste like mini Mounds!
I’m hoping to share these on Valentine’s Day, but they’ve already started disappearing.
Sweets (with me around) have a way of doing that.
