Cut Out Rounds
Once chilled, use a small round cookie cutter to cut rounds; mine was 1 inch in diameter. Place cut outs onto a tray lined with wax paper and chill until firm.
Dip in Chocolate
Melt the chocolate wafers and dip each 3-layer round into the chocolate, using a large dipping fork or a meat fork (works great!): Submerge a chilled minty round into the melted chocolate, lift it gently with the fork. Shake off excess and place freshly coated patties onto the tray lined with wax paper. Cool tray in the fridge for 10 minutes to harden the chocolate. Store mint patties in a cool place in an airtight container, layered with wax paper between each layer.
