I am thankful today that I am home from work one more day. And thankful I finished making the peppermint patties I make every year at this time. It's a soothing thing to make, everyone loves them. Here goes:
Twelve cups of powdered sugar.
One 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
One cup butter, melted and 3/4 teaspoons peppermint oil (NOT extract, use oil)
Use your scrupulously clean hands to mix. It really is the only way. (Holy cow! Is my hand really that wrinkly?????)
Knead till it's the consistency of PlayDoh.
