Homemade candy around the holidays is one of the best gifts you can give.  These homemade peppermint patties from Petite Kitchenesse are a decadent treat that everyone will enjoy.  After all, who can resist the the contrast of bittersweet chocolate and smooth minty cream?  If you make these peppermint patties, beware, people will be asking for them every year from here on out.
