Do you remember the peppermint pattie commercials where a person would be swept away by the sensation of a cool minty breeze? Those images are still stuck in my mind! And great memories, too – I remember sharing peppermint patties with my Pap.
I love preparing food for my family because I know we’re making memories woven from tantalizing smells, scrumptious tastes, and who’s there enjoying the good food together. I share so many wonderful memories with my men and my besties, often involving food and specially-prepared coffee or tea in some way or another. To me, good people and good food go hand in hand!
Today, I’m really thrilled to share my homemade peppermint patties — a treat my family loves!
Only I’ve made them a little more nutritious. Instead of using commercial confectioner’s sugar, I make my own by grinding unrefined sugar in my grain mill (you can also whizz in a blender). And the dipping chocolate is homemade, too, and based with coconut oil.
Enjoy the minty freshness! Not only will you catch the attention of your loved ones’ taste buds, you’ll give them a relatively healthy sweet treat!
So today, I’m sharing my Homemade Peppermint Candy recipe over at GNOWFGLINS. ♥
