When gifting these patties, be sure to include a gift tag indicating they need to be refrigerated.

Instructions

Beat sugar, milk, corn syrup, shortening, and peppermint oil in a mixer on low speed to combine. Shape dough into two disks, cover each with plastic wrap, and chill 30 minutes.

Liberally sprinkle a sheet of parchment paper with powdered sugar. Place one dough disk on top and sprinkle with more powdered sugar; roll 14-inch thick and cut into rounds with a 178-inch cutter. Transfer rounds to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Reroll scraps until all dough is used; repeat with second dough disk. Freeze rounds until firm, 30 minutes or overnight.

Melt chocolate in a double boiler; let cool 5 minutes. Dip patties into chocolate using two forks, scraping excess chocolate from beneath fork on side of bowl and place patties on parchment-lined baking sheet.

Sprinkle patties with candies and let stand until chocolate sets up, about 1 hour. Store patties in the refrigerator.
