St. Peppermint Patty's Day!

Ah the luck of the Irish.  Hopefully you are lucky enough to bust out some of these SUPER easy peppermint patties!  Happy St. Patty's Day my friends!!

Peppermint Patty

1  14 oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 tablespoon peppermint extract
6 cups powdered sugar, plus additional for kneading filling
1 1/2 pounds chocolate-flavored candy coating, melted
Green food coloring (optional)  

In large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, peppermint extract and food coloring (optional). Add 6 cups sugar; beat on low speed until smooth and well blended. Turn mixture onto surface sprinkled with powdered sugar. Knead lightly to form smooth ball. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on wax paper-lined baking sheets. Flatten each ball into a 1 1/2-inch patty. 

Let dry 1 hour or longer; turn over and let dry at least 1 hour. Put in freezer to harden up. With fork, dip each patty into warm candy coating (draw fork lightly across rim of pan to remove excess coating). Invert onto wax paper-lined baking sheets; let stand until firm. Store covered at room temperature or in refrigerator.
