Makes 12 pieces
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk (corn syrup will do, too)
2 tsp extract of your choice
3 cups powdered sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate
2 teaspoons oil
Sprinkles, cocoa powder, mints, crushed or pulverized fun stuff.
Combine butter, corn syrup and extract in a bowl, mixing until smooth. Add powdered sugar and salt, mixing until combined and smooth. Taste and adjust extract if needed.
Divide dough into 2 tablespoon-sized balls. Roll into a ball and flatten with the palm of your hand. Transfer patties onto a clean pan or plate and freeze for 10 minutes until super cold.
Melt chocolate and oil gently in microwave until smooth.
Remove patties from freezer and using a fork or gloved hands, coat each patty in the chocolate. Transfer chocolate coated patties to a parchment/wax/aluminum lined pan to cool. Leave as is or top with fun things that tell the flavor story of your patty.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 month, being careful not to commingle flavors— you don’t want your bday patties to taste like peppermint!
