Recipe: Homemade Peppermint Patties

Recipe: Homemade Peppermint Patties

A brand new way to think about meal planning that makes getting healthy, delicious food to your table easy. I am absolutely in love with it, and I know you will be, too. Check it out here.

Homemade peppermint patties. These are awesome. And a super delicious treat that is perfect to give as a holiday gift… or enjoy all by yourself. Either way. And with the right ingredients, there is no guilt attached to these delicious morsels. Real food, real enjoyment. Sounds good to me.

But what exactly was my inspiration for these homemade peppermint patties? Well, I’ll tell you… it came in the form of a text. From the hubs:

Totally True Text from Tom:

Just a thought, a holiday post for homemade peppermint patties could be fun… and delicious… no pressure… just saying… just a wishing… just a thinking… I WANT A PEPPERMINT PATTY NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!

How do you say “no” to that? And my husband was right, homemade peppermint patties seemed perfect as we are just days away from Christmas.

Homemade peppermint patties! Delicious, festive, and made with real ingredients.

 

Note: I used homemade powdered sugar made from Rapadura. This gives a light brown color to the peppermint filling. But it still tastes delicious!

    M’mmm….sounds and looks divine! Thanks for sharing. Your Black Bean Brownies were a huge hit at work and at a party this past weekend. Since I added both optional ingredients: peanut butter and oatmeal, I changed the name to “Cowpie Fudge Brownies” and only revealed the “secret ingredient” after half were ingested. Maybe that was dishonest, but too many people get finicky about hidden goodies. I knew if my knowing husband liked them, everyone would. Thanks again! Will be making again for sure! Now on to peppermint patties to usher in this Christmas! :)

        Sweet stuff aficionado who has spent a year in Indonesia, I purport palm sugar is the best of the best of the best. Grab it as natural, whole and organic as you can. But grab some, regardless :)

    Hi there,

    will the coconut oil make it taste or smell like coconut? The smell of coconut gives me nothing short of a raging, massive headache and I can’t stand the taste, either.

    Thank you!

      It does have a slight coconut flavor… but you could use expellar pressed coconut oil and then you shouldn’t have a problem.

      Hmmmm… not sure. It sounds like and awesome idea, but I haven’t used a lot of mint to know how to best work with it in this recipe.

    Made these for my hubby for Christmas and they are AMAZING!!!!! Better than store quality without all the yucky ingredients! I used peppermint essential oil (about 6 drops) as I had it and not the extract. On to your next wonderful idea!!!
