Peppermint Patties

Here's one that's really easy to make and very kid friendly!

4 c powdered sugar
2 egg whites
few drops mint flavoring

chocolate baking chips

Beat egg whites until foamy. Add mint flavoring (I prefer peppermint). Stir in powdered sugar, about 1/2 c at a time until dough gets thick, then continue mixing powdered sugar in with your hands, kneading as you go. I suggest wearing rubber gloves! If the dough is too sticky, add powdered sugar tablespoon at a time. When all the sugar is mixed in, shape dough into quarter size pieces and put on cooling rack to set. It will take a few hours to set all the way.

When mint pieces are set, melt chocolate in double boiler and dip mint pieces in. Place on wax paper to cool.

Faith made these today. I have to admit, that little girl has some awesome kitchen skills! These turned out great.
