Pink Peppermint Patties

I made these for the first time around Christmas and they were so cute and yummy I decided to make them for everyone’s Easter baskets this year. I love candy that you can make and wrap cute! I think I first stumbled across these on Pinterest which then led me to the fabulous Sweetapolita blog. I am now addicted to her blog as she is always creating fabulous treats that not only taste wonderful but look adorable too and she always does a great job photographing and presenting everything that just makes your mouth water! I love how these turned out and can’t wait to do them for all different events. I love the pink foil I found to wrap them in and will be keeping my eyes peeled for more fun colored foil. They are very easy to make but just a little time consuming. It is well worth it though. I hope you and your family will enjoy these if you get a chance to make them.

Recipe and idea adapted from Sweetapolita, her blog is one of my favorites for yummy and pretty treats!
