My daughter, Jessica, found this great recipe for peppermint patties at Elana’s Pantry. We tweaked it a bit to incorporate Young Living Therapeutic Grade Peppermint Essential Oil! You can pamper yourself and your family, as well as your guests, by making these healthy candies ahead and serving them on elegant dishes. Enjoy!
- ½ cup Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (I recommend Nutiva brand at the link below)
- ¼ cup agave nectar
- 5-10 drops of Young Living therapeutic grade Peppermint Essential Oil
- ½ to 1 cup dark chocolate or bittersweet chocolate chips, melted (or dark chocolate melting chips)
In a small bowl, combine coconut oil, agave, and peppermint oil, mixing with a spoon. Smash clumps of coconut oil against side of bowl until mixture is smooth. Freeze mixture for a few minutes until it starts to harden, then remove from freezer.
Use a small spoon to measure out little balls onto a parchment paper lined plate. Lightly “squoosh” balls into flat patties. Place plate in freezer until firm. Using a spoon, dip patties into melted chocolate. Place patties on parchment paper to harden (takes about 10 minutes). On a hot day, you may want to place in the refrigerator.
NOTE: To convert this recipe into “Orange Dreamsicles Patties,” modify this recipe by using orange or tangerine essential oil instead of peppermint, and white chocolate melting chips instead of dark chocolate.
Makes about 12 patties
