Peppermint Patties (gluten, corn, soy, dairy and refined sugar free)



Peppermint patties were always one my favorite candies. I use to love them in the freezer. Chocolate mints were always a holiday tradition for my family. There were always thin mints on the table after dinner on a holiday. Now, I have a version that is much healthier but still satisfies my craving for chocolate mints especially around this time of the year. This recipe was adapted from this recipe from Elana's Pantry.

Ingredients
One Serving of my chocolate recipe found here.
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon Organic Peppermint oil



Directions
In a bowl mix together the coconut oil, honey and peppermint oil until smooth.



Put in the freezer for a few minutes until firm enough to scoop out with a cookie scoop. Scoop onto parchment lined dish and push down into a flattened disc shape. Place back in freezer until hardened.



Make your chocolate recipe. Pour the chocolate into a bow. Take out the patties from the freezer and dip into the chocolate. Place back onto the parchment and back into the freezer to harden. I like to do this step twice, I like a thicker chocolate coating on the patties.
