1 pound confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
4 ounces, weight cream cheese, softened
¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
Using a mixer, gradually add the sugar to the cream cheese, beat well until incorporated. Add peppermint extract and combine well. Roll dough into teaspoon size balls and place on baking sheet(s) lined with wax paper or parchment. Create a small “bowl” or indention in each ball using a ¼ teaspoon or your finger. Cover with plastic wrap and let firm up in refrigerator for a few hours. When peppermints have firmed, melt chocolate according to package directions (microwave is fine). Fill a piping bag or freezer bag with the corner snipped with the melted chocolate. Fill each mini peppermint bowl/indention with chocolate and let cool.
Refrigerate in airtight container until ready to serve.
