A Peppermint Patty refers to a type of candy that consists of a soft, minty filling encased in a chocolate coating. The filling is typically made from a mixture that includes peppermint oil or extract, giving it a distinct, refreshing mint flavor. This confectionery treat is known for its contrast between the cool, creamy peppermint center and the rich, sweet chocolate exterior.
One of the most famous brands of Peppermint Patties in the United States is York Peppermint Pattie, which is known for its slogan promoting the sensation of coolness it provides. These candies are popular for their unique taste and texture, offering a crisp snap of the chocolate shell followed by the smooth, creamy peppermint filling. They are enjoyed as a snack or dessert and are also used in various recipes for added flavor and texture.
