    Sweetiebarbara's Note:

    These are from Helen Jones, a member of the Sewing Bee at my church. She is a fine quilter and even finer person.The passive time (chill time and waiting to harden) I count as "cooking time". This recipe was not as easy for me as it sounded, so I am updating the recipe as I learn better how to make these mints. Yes, they were worth the trouble! Everyone loved them!... so did I...

      Great, delicate chocolate mints. Like Chef Lee, I used the McCormick mint extract. Also, after dipping just one in the warm chocolate coating, it was obvious they would melt before they were coated. So I simply got a spoon and dipped one side in the coating and spread it on the flattened, chilled balls. Then chilled again, turned and coated the other side. Easy and delicious little treats. Thanks for sharing, Sweetiebarbara.

      These are delicious and fun to make!!! Lovely flavor of an after- dinner butter mint with chocolate!! I dipped a few patties in the chocolate and then I decided to get my pastry-decorating tips out and apply the chocolate that way. It was fun to decorate them and a lot easier too. I used ghirardelli semisweet chocolate chips and mint extract (spearmint and peppermint blend) by McCormick. The mints are soft in texture like a York Peppermint Patty. If a York Peppermint Patty and an After Dinner butter mint had a baby, it would taste like these!!!! Love this recipe, thanks for posting!
