2 cups semi−sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1 & 1/8 cup powdered sugar
2 eggs
1 teas. vanilla
2 teas. peppermint extract, or to taste

Melt chips in double−boiler, cool. Beat butter and sugar together.
Beat in eggs, one at a time, into sugar mix. Add vanilla.
Now beat in cooled chocolate and peppermint, the longer you
beat the mixture at this point the lighter and fluffier the mints are.
Drop by half teaspoons onto wax paper or use a pastry bag
for decorative mints. Keep refrigerated.
