- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 3¾ cups powdered sugar
- 1 package chocolate CandiQuik or any chocolate melts
Mix together coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of half n half, light corn syrup, lemon juice, peppermint extract and vanilla.
Now you will want to mix in the powdered sugar one cup at a time. Once you get all the powdered sugar mixed in turn the speed up and let the mix become nice and creamy. If it happens to be a little crumbly you can add in a tablespoon of half n half.
Divide the dough into small balls (1/2 inch to 1 inch in size) using your hands, pat dough into 1/4 inch thick. Place on a piece of wax paper lined tray and place in freezer for 3-4 hours.
Melt CandiQuik in the microwave or a melting pot so your chocolate is ready to dip.
Line a second tray with wax paper and remove mints from freezer. Dip bottom side in melted chocolate then using a spoon pour chocolate over top of mints to cover. Repeat!
Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Not that they will ever last that long. 🙂
