Recipe: Peppermint Patties

MAKES 12

INGREDIENTS
½ cup coconut oil
3 to 4 tbsp honey
½ tsp vanilla essence
6-10 drops peppermint essential oil or 1 tsp peppermint extract
¾ cup chocolate chips, melted

METHOD
1 With a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the coconut oil, honey, and vanilla until very smooth.
2 Drip in the peppermint essential oil or extract. Taste as you go to flavour to taste.
3 Place the mixture in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes to allow it to harden slightly.
4 Once the mixture is firm enough to handle, divide it into 12 portions, and roll them into small balls.
5 Place the balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Gently flatten them to form a disc.
6 Place the cookie sheet back in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes to allow them to firm up once more.
7 While the discs are chilling, melt the chocolate chips, with a bowl set over a saucepan of hot water. Be mindful that the bowl does not touch the water.
8 Remove the discs from the freezer and dip them into the melted chocolate. Place them back onto the parchment paper and allow to set in the refrigerator.
