Chocolate and mint have rarely been married before in such hearty packaging as with these heart-shaped peppermint patties by blogger Erin Cooks. Although Hershey's York peppermint patties may have perfected the 1940 recipe, these lookers come mighty close in taste; in fact Erin describes them as having an "eerily similar" flavor.
As they say, the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach -- so show your valentine how much you care by whipping up a batch today with this simple-but-sticky recipe.
