Chocolate mint patties

Yield: 84 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3⅔ cup (1lb.) powdered sugar
¼ cup Hershey's cocoa
⅓ cup Butter or margarine, softened
⅓ cup Light corn syrup
1 teaspoon Peppermint extract

Sift together powdered sugar and cocoa; set aside. In a large mixer bowl on medium speed with electric mixer, beat butter, corn syrup, and peppermint extract until well blended. Gradually add 1 to 2 cups cocoa mixture, beating until well blended and smooth. With a wooden spoon, stir in remaining cocoa mixture. With hands, knead until mixture is well blended and smooth. On waxed paper, pat or roll out to ¼-inch thickness. With small cookie cutters, cut into desired shapes. Or, using about 1 tsp. of chocolate mixture for each, shape into balls; flatten into patties.

Decorate as desired. Store, tightly covered, in refrigerator.
