Use this recipe to make the most delicious Homemade Peppermint Patties all year long- perfect for treats, homemade gifts, and holiday parties!

It’s party season and nothing impresses more than homemade candies. The great news is that candies like these Homemade Peppermint Patties are super simple to make.

I am the worst gift-giver in all the land. I have good intentions; I just don’t like spending money. I know! It’s so weird. I am an underspender. What is an underspender? Besides from the obvious implications of the name there are some very annoying consequences of being an underspender.

  • Underspenders look for the best price but are them often disappointed in the quality so they end up purchasing the item twice.
  • Underspenders see something they like but put off purchasing it until later…often too late.
  • Underspenders can even avoid making routine appointments because MONEY.

Okay I’m not a straight up underspender- I’m happy and healthy and I treat myself (and others), but I just didn’t get the shopping gene passed on. Possibly because neither my parents not grandparents were spenders.

But I did get the baking gene; I love being in the kitchen especially this time of year! So even though I might have seen that beautiful thing you wanted and I thought of you, I didn’t buy it. Now it’s the night before the office party and I’m making you candy. So hush. Life could be worse.

These Homemade Peppermint Patties are crazy good- perfectly creamy bursting with just the right amount of peppermint flavor throughout. You’re going to want to put these on your to-do list!

    What is the asterick for on coconut oil? If I dont have coconut oil, what could I use?Homemade Peppermint Patties Recipe (10)

    I am making your peppermint patties today. The recipe says it yields 12 but I am getting about 40 out of the recipe. I did make the dough 1/4 in thick and I actually used a 1.3 in cutter ( a little bigger).
    Also you say to combine all ingredients but I wasn’t sure if that meant the coconut oil too.
    There is an asterick behind the coconut oil but I don’t see it referenced below.

    What if you don’t have a paddle attachment. Can you use a hand mixer?

    Combine ALL ingredients? Thinking chocolate is for dipping, right?

    Coconut oil goes well with the white chocolate. I tried to cook it for my little brother. He likes everything sweet and smelly:)

  11. KylieReply

    Does the coconut oil need to be in its solid form or is the liquid form ok?

    • Katrina Bahl

      Either way is fine.

  12. CecileReply

    I’m thinking that the coconut oil goes into the melted chocolate to soften it and not in with the peppermint mixture.

    • Katrina Bahl

      The coconut oil goes into the peppermint candy mixture. You could use coconut oil or shortening to thin the chocolate if needed as well.

    • Cecile

      Thanks! 🙂
