Frosty Frosting!!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, but now it is time for Christmas baking!! Here is an idea I came up with this week. I made a new frosting that is versatile, delicious, and perfect for this time of year. It involves mini York peppermint patties, can't get any better than that. It was an experaMINT that turned out beautifully! It is sooo good because you get the creaminess of the frosting, the dense York center, and then a sprinkling of soft chocolate pieces throughout. YUM!

Peppermint Patty Frosting
1 Cube Butter melted
4 Cups (or so) Powdered Sugar
Milk as needed
1 pkg. Mini York Peppermint patties

Pour your melted butter into a bowl and mix in powdered sugar a little at a time. Add little splashes of milk as needed to keep thinning it out while you get all your sugar added. (Tip: really add just a very small amount of milk at a time or you will have enough frosting to frost until next Christmas.) If you need more frosting for whatever you are baking just add more powdered sugar until you get there. Once you have the amount of frosting you want and the consistency right it is time to throw in your peppermint patties. I made my frosting in a mixer so I just threw them in whole and it broke them up for me. If mixing by hand break them up first. Spread on brownies, homemade oreos, cupcakes or just eat it with a spoon!!
