Homemade Peppermint Patties – so yummy!!

yummy minty goodness!

I made some yummy, healthy peppermint patties recently. The best part is? (besides how yummy they are) They are SO EASY to make!

I brought some that I made to a family birthday party and everyone loved them (especially my dad, who is a mint FANATIC!).

I wasn’t super specific with measurements and just made the mint part until it looked like it was a good texture and tastes minty and sweet.  So, when you try the recipe yourself, don’t be afraid to experiment a little bit with the amounts of things.

Homemade Peppermint Patties
1/2c. coconut butter
1/4c. honey
10 drops of peppermint oil
1 c. chocolate chips (melted, for dipping)

Mix the first 3 ingredients together (you might have to melt the coconut butter and honey a little bit). Then, mold them into balls and smash them a little bit on some wax paper.  Put your mint “middles” into the freezer.  While they are in the freezer, start melting the chocolate.  Then, get your “middles” out of the freezer and dip them in the chocolate! Let them dry and then enjoy!  YUM!

SHOUT OUT to the blog that I got the idea from!  I love her blog!

p.s. you can get coconut butter at most health foods stores… or buy it online. I bought mine on amazon.

 

yummy mints!
