DIRECTIONS

  • Tips: To shape the candies into uniform balls, use a #70 or smaller ice cream or sherbet scoop. For an interesting effect, roll the shaped, chilled candies in cocoa before serving.
  • Mix chocolate chips, butter and cream in a heavy saucepan.
  • Place over very low heat and stir until chips and butter are melted and mixture is smooth and thick. Remove from heat.
  • Beat in the powdered sugar until mixture is smooth again. Stir in the peppermint extract.
  • Cover and chill about 1 or 2 hours until mixture is thick enough to shape or drop into small candy cups.
  • Divide the mixture into 24 portions.
  • Drop into paper bonbon cups or first roll into small balls before placing into cups.
