Method

The peppermint balls can be made with any plain biscuits however we make our own.

So we’ll give you the biscuit recipe first in case you want to use it!

Since we only want the mixture to crush for the balls what I do is mix all ingredients together (after making a well with dry ingredients and adding the rest) and press into slice tin. Bake at 180degrees for 20 minutes or until golden.

To make the balls you crush the cooked biscuit mixture and add 2-3Tbsp raw Cacao Powder (or Cocoa), a few drops peppermint essence, about 1/4 cup coconut and oil or butter and soya milk.

Can’t tell you the exact amounts!! It doesn’t really matter – just taste it and if it needs a bit more of something then just add it. You just need enough oil and milk to make it bind together enough to make into balls. Roll in coconut and chill.

Recipe Disclaimer

Thanks for clicking on this yummy recipe! Before you make it you need to know I am not a fancy chef! Neither am I an expert cook who aspires to measure everything. Writing recipes is in fact rather difficult for me as I am a creative, touch, taste and smell-as-I-go kinda girl! I realise this does not suit all personality types, forgive me, so if you would like better measurements or descriptions for the kind of recipe I present it might be a good idea to google something similar as I am sure there would be plenty out there based off the same principles as these recipes!! The sharing of these recipes is just an outlet for my creative flair! Good luck – I mean – enjoy! Kim x
