Peppermint Creams

17

My daughter checked out a cookbook from the library and was so excited to get cooking with me! This was the first recipe she chose to make, however we had to alter the measurements quite a bit, so here's what we did...

17
4 1/2 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
10 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract (be careful, if you have a strong one you may only need a few drops, apparently I had a very mild one and it took a lot)
few drops green food coloring
6 oz milk chocolate (dark can also be used)
Mix sugar and sweetened condensed milk in bowl, stir until a crumbly mixture is made. Add extract and food coloring then knead to smooth firm mixture. You can lightly dust counter top with confectioners...
