The bracing blend of peppermint enrobed in bittersweet chocolate is one of the best—and most refreshing—candy combinations going, and homemade versions of these popular patties are leagues better than anything you'll find in a foil wrapper. Here, we've tempered the chocolate to give it a beautiful sheen and to prevent the coating from developing a bloom at room temperature.
