Chocolate Mint Patties

RaeAnne got this recipe off the Internet.  These are good, but rich.

3 2/3 cup powdered sugar (1 pound)

1/4 cup cocoa

1/3 cup butter

1/3 cup corn syrup

1 – 2 teaspoons peppermint extract

Sift together the powdered sugar and cocoa; set aside.  In a large mixer bowl on medium speed beat butter, corn syrup, and peppermint extract until well blended.  Gradually beat in 1 to 2 cups of cocoa mixture until well blended and smooth.

On wax paper pat or roll out to 1/4 inch thickness.  With small cookie cutters, cut into desired shapes.  You can put some crushed peppermints or spearmint candies on top.  Store in a tightly covered container in a cool place, or in refrigerator.
