Peppermint Patties

  • This recipe was adapted from The Food Lovers Kitchen
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, 1/4 tsp peppermint oil, 1 tsp peppermint oil, 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • Melt chocolate in a small saucepan on low and add 1/4 tsp of peppermint oil
  • In a small bowl, mix melted coconut oil and 1 tsp peppermint oil
  • With clean hands (or unused paint brush), use fingers to paint melted chocolate into candy molds
  • Place the molds in the freezer for 10 minutes
  • Fill molds with mint filling and place in the freezer for an additional 10 minutes
  • Cover tops of with a layer of chocolate and freeze at least 10 minutes or until ready to enjoy
  • I could have made a couple batches of the heart peppermint patties, but instead played around with the remaining mix.  You can see some of the experimentation with my frozen orange things (can't remember what kind of citrus fruit is pictured)
