I love these mints. If the patties don't thicken don't give up just keep adding powdered sugar and kneading. You won't be disappointed Read More

This was quite a disaster. I was looking for a good mint patty recipe with a firm filling however even after FREEZING the mint filling it was not firm enough to form a ball or a patty for that matter. So because I did not want to waste all of the expensive ingredients I dropped the filling by spoonfuls onto wax paper and drizzled melted chocolate on top. I couldn't even peel them off the wax paper they were so sticky! I tasted of one and ended up throwing the rest away as they were not at all presentable. Read More

So I was nervous about making this recipe after reading reviews but it's the only mint one I could find so I went for it. I did 2 C. pwd sugar 1/3 c. margarine 1 TBS corn syrup(or a tad more) and a couple drops peppermint. It has turned out thick and yummy so far we'll see how the rest goes. Read More

The mint center filling didn't thicken enough to make patties so I spread the mixture on a cookie sheet and poored melted chocolate on top and then cut them up. Read More

This did not turn out at all. I did everything exactly as instructed but even after refrigerating over 24 hours these still were runny. I added three more cups powdered sugar and they still won't firm up enough to do anything with. I'm afraid I will have to throw the entire thing away. Read More

very soupy. after reading other reviews I was prepared to add lots of powdered sugar. Even after 3 extra cups of powdered sugar it was still not the right texture. It was entirely too grainy. I do NOT recommend this recipe! Read More

I love this recipe! I've made it twice with no problem. Everyone loved them. I followed the recipe exactly. Make sure you chill them for an hour as you are forming the patties your hands are warm and they get a little soft. Just put them back in the fridge for a little and start making more after they are chilled again. Read More
