I have good friends. Friends who make me die laughing on the regular and friends who propose specific sweets for me to make. When someone mentioned peppermint patties, I was sold. I once bought a box of peppermint patties from Costco and ate one every day for more than six months. I never got tired of them.
They aren't difficult to make but they are a bit of a hassle, as in I completely destroyed my mom's kitchen in the process. They were totally worth it. (Right, Mom?) This recipe is super clear and has lots of helpful visual aids. Peppermint patties freeze like a dream, so you can make a huge batch and hoard them for as long as you please.
