Come on now! You guys all KNEW this one was coming, right?  I revamped my easy Christmas Peppermint Patties and I made my most favorite flavor ever – cherry! Now, obviously you could use whatever flavor of extract your heart desires.  Strawberry, cherry, vanilla, rum, banana…you get the idea, yes?

Now if you’re like one of those super moms, you could totally make multiple flavors and be the talk of the town. Strawberry pink patties, cherry red patties, pina colada white patties. Just threw that in there.

Now I want to make pina colada patties. Shoot!

So you might have noticed that I added a few twists to these patties. One, some of these bad boys are heart shaped.  Cause who can resist hearts when we’re so close to Valentine’s Day? Not me!

Super easy to do.  Just make your patties as instructed and then use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut the heart-pattie out.  I totally tried to roll out the dough and cut them out like sugar cookies BUT it.just.didn’t.work. Whatevs. This was just as easy. Oh yeah. Those scraps? Totally reusable AND those sweet thangs are what gave me my next idea…

You can make tie-dye looking hearts (or circles!) by just rolling together two or more colors at a time! Super easy and my kids totally think I’m a genius now.  I’m not sure why they didn’t before but…ok.

So when you’re all done (10 minutes later) you can package these up for the kiddos or be a hoarder and eat them all by yourself.  I will NOT judge.

Oh my goodness these things are addictive!  Get them out of your house quick if you can :)  So there you have it, totally easy Valentine’s Day Patties. Make them. Now!

  3. These are gorgeous and so vibrant!

  4. Oh this is so bad. I have all those ingredients in my baking cabinet AND I was just looking at my candy flavoring wondering what I would make next with it. I WILL end up making these & I WILL end up eating all of them – all by myself. :)

    Thanks Trish

  13. This might be a silly question, but where do I find these extracts or candy flavorings?

  14. gaaaaahhhhh!!! My Grammie used to make these mints! I soooo clearly remember them! But when she made them, they were always pastel colored. I love the vibrant colors you have here! Gorgeous!! It’s been so many years since I’ve had these – I cannot wait to make these!!! Thanks Trish! :)

  15. The kids and I just made some of these and they are so yummy! I didn’t have any extracts besides vanilla and lemon (neither sounded appealing) so we used unsweetened Kool Aid powder, they have a bit of a sour aftertaste though, I think we used too much. We put in a little more than a half a teaspoon of Kool Aid powder, in case anyone is wondering how much is too much. Half as much would have been the right amount, but I had two kids helping so I had to let them both add some.

  16. so pretty and festive!
