Chocolate Peppermint Candies

Over at SheWearsManyHats, I found a yummy looking recipe post on how to make homemade peppermint patty candies. To make these, all you need is cream cheese, confectioners powdered sugar, peppermint extract, and chocolate chips. I didn't have peppermint extract so I used vanilla in place of it, 
and just ground up a candy cane in my blender. It didn't make it as pepperminty as I wanted, but it did the job enough lol. They came out pretty but way too sweet for my liking. I think it was all the powdered sugar that did it! But they were fun to make! :)

Mix the ingredients and roll into balls and flatten. Refrigerate for a lil bit.
 Then top them with melted chocolate. I didn't have melted chocolate or anything chocolatey 
in my house except for chocolate frosting lol. So I used that! Which is probably another reason  
these came out too sweet for my liking ;)

 They came out kind of cute. Would have been cuter if it was topped with my peppermint sprinkles. But I didn't think of that until later haha. Fun little Christmas treat...
but I suggest you follow the recipe to the T to get it right :)
