These homemade Chocolate Peppermints are easier than they look.
It’s funny how the mind works, or at least my mind. For example, years upon years (actually up until I googled it a few minutes ago) it didn’t occur to me that Peppermint Patties were named because of their shape, instead of after a person named Patty. I think Charlie Brown threw me off a bit. I was like, “I’m not sure who this Patty girl is, but her confections sure are the perfect follow-up to that Burrito Deluxe at our local Mexican restaurant.” Peppermint Patties are always at the checkouts at those restaurants for some reason. If we ever visit Mexico, and Peppermint Patties are not at the restaurant checkouts, we’ll certainly be miffed beyond degree.
