The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Chocolate mint sauce

This is a super simple sauce that is excellent over ice cream

What you’ll need:

  • 10 York Peppermint Patties (the candy)
  • 3 – 5 Tbl cream (depending on how thick you want it)

Melt the candies in the top of a double boiler stirring occasionally. Blend in cream when candies are completely melted. Use immediately. Makes enough to cover 6 servings of ice cream (or 4 if you heap it on like I do!)

Cost:
candy – $1.50
cream – $1.12
Total – $1.72
