These homemade peppermint patties in red, white and blue are a fun treat for a 4th of July dessert!
Can we please start thinking about the 4th of July? Because it will be here before you know it. These red, white and blue peppermint patty candies are fresh, minty, sweet, and addictive. And they are all stripey in red, white and blue. So you kind of have to make them.
The recipe is pretty simple. Combine powdered sugar, light corn syrup, shortening, and peppermint extract. Tint with food coloring, shape, and coat with white chocolate or white candy melts. Here, I also topped with some star sprinkles. These are definitely a unique snack or 4th of July dessert recipe.
