6 cups powdered sugar (1 1/2 pounds)
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 t. peppermint extract
1 1/2 pounds milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
In a large bowl combine the powdered sugar, sweetened condensed milk, butter, and extract. Beat well. You should have a “dough” similar to a play dough. If the mixture is crumbly, add a little more milk or butter. Shape into 1/2 inch balls and flatten to form patties. Freeze for 30 minutes.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt half of the chocolate in the microwave on half power. Stirring and watching until all the lumps are gone. Dip the patties into the chocolate, tapping off the excess. Place on waxed paper until set. Repeat with the other half of the chocolate. Store in an air tight container.
