Have you ever made homemade Peppermint Patties? I did for the first time last year, and man are they easy. And SO delicious. Because of my great love for these delectable palate cleansers, I decided to give them a fun twist!
Place semi-sweet chocolate into a microwave safe container and melt chocolate in 30-second increments, stirring well after each 30-second interval. When chocolate is mostly melted (some chunks can remain) add in shortening. Place back in microwave for 15-30 seconds.
Remove one tray of pumpkin discs from freezer. Place one disc on fork and dip into thin chocolate mixture. Let excess chocolate fall back into bowl and then place chocolate covered pumpkin disc on parchment lined baking sheet. Chill for 30 minutes (or an hour at room temperature) and enjoy!
