Blaire’s Old School Peppermint Patties

posted in: Blog, Recipes | 0

Blaire is one of my Oil Loving Mummas who incorporates the use of the doTERRA essential oils into her everyday cooking and cleaning to reduce the free radicals her little ones come into contact with.

A couple of months back, I popped into her place for a cuppa and she pulled these little babies out of the fridge. They were soooooo yum!!! I asked her where she got them so I could go and get some to take home to the safety of my own home, where I could gorge on them, away from social etiquettes and judging eyes. She told me they were something she ‘whipped up’, so I demanded she wrote it down and here it is…

What you need;

1x 250g block of cream cheese at room temperature
8-10 Cups of Icing Sugar
doTERRA Peppermint Oil approximately 6 drops
A block of dark chocolate

What to do;

Put the cream cheese in a bowl

Add icing sugar cup by cup mixing it together as you go, until it becomes a doughy consistency. I start with a wooden spoon and as it becomes less sticky I get my hands in there to mush it like play dough.

One it has the consistency of play dough, add doTERRA peppermint oil to taste and mix that through.

Roll into balls about the size of a 20c piece, flatten gently with a fork (helps to dip the fork in icing sugar to avoid sticking)

Put them in the refrigerator until they are firm

Melt the chocolate gently on the stove top on a low heat.

Take the refrigerated mint balls from the fridge

Dip in melted dark chocolate then refrigerate again.

Try not to eat them all at once!

You can do this same recipe with the doTERRA Wild Orange Oil and it tastes sooooooo God damn good!

Side Note:

Peppermint Oil is known as the ‘Oil of the Buoyant Heart’.

Peppermint brings joy and buoyancy to the heart and soul. It invigorates the body, mind and spirit. It reminds individuals that life can be happy and there is nothing to fear. It assists individuals to stay on the surface of their emotional issues allowing them a period of reprieve, until they find the strength needed to face their emotional reality. When it is accepted and embraced, emotional pain will serve as a teacher.

When the individual is disheartened they may use Peppermint to re-discover the joy of being alive. For this reason, the power of Peppermint oil can be felt the most during times of discouragement or depression.

So make some for a friend, take them around and enjoy a cuppa and a chat… you never know how much someone may just need an opportunity to talk about shit.
