Makes about 40 patties
1/ 2 cup butter
3 1/3 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp half and half
2 tsp peppermint extract
2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp coconut oil
3 peppermint candy canes, or a handful of peppermint candies, roughly chopped
In a bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter until smooth.
Add the half and half and peppermint extract.
Slowly add the powdered sugar and beat until combined.
Roll mixture into a 14 inch long roll, measuring about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
Wrap roll in parchment paper and freeze for at least 2 hours, or until firm.
Prepare the chocolate by placing the chips in a small microwave safe dish.
Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir.
Microwave for an additional 30 seconds, then stir again until all chips are melted. If they need more time, microwave in 10 second intervals, stirring in between.
Add the coconut oil to the chocolate and stir to combine.
Once the peppermint roll is firm, remove from freezer and cut 1/4 inch thick patties.
Dip each patty in the melted chocolate, place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, then immediately top with the chopped candy canes.
