Unfortunately, I only remembered the camera towards the end of today's sweet making. Sorry! Anyway, what I was trying to do was recreate the York Peppermint Pattie, something that kept me going on many a TA office hours morning at UNC. Turns out they're fairly simple to make: you pour half a can of condensed milk into a stand mixer, add some peppermint extract and then beat in enough icing sugar to turn the mixture into a dough. And enough to cover the kitchen in a fine dust. Ahem. The dough is then rolled out onto a cookie sheet (well, okay, I used a silicon mat instead) and placed into the freezer for about ten-fifteen minutes. While it's freezing, why not melt some dark chocolate? Doesn't have to be too fancy; I used 60% cocoa baking chocolate. Anyway, after the dough has been in the freezer for a while, pull it out (it should be quite stiff). Take a brush and paint a layer of chocolate onto the dough.
