These are easy to do and I made them to give to my neighbor for her birthday. I dipped half of each patty in milk chocolate and they looked pretty fancy. I think I may make some again soon to use on my Christmas trays!

These are lovely for a quick mint. The mint flavour was very mild, so I added 3/4 tsp of peppermint extract and it probably would be better with a full teaspoon. Hope you don't mind, but I thought it needed a wee bit of colour, so added a chocolate drizzle. I made 50 (10g) patties. These will be part of our Christmas! Thank you for sharing. Made for Billboard Recipe tag.
