Continuing on with making the season merry and bright we have a fun recipe for you.

It’s pretty on the eyes too, as well as your digestion. It’s funny for us now to think about but many years ago we went through a really big peppermint obsession. We thought hey it helps with digestion and we have major digestion problems let’s just eat all the peppermint we can. We loved Andes Mints and New York Peppermint patties.

But over the years we learned less is more. This idea really applies to all areas of life.

Keeping things simple. And this recipe doesn’t get any simpler for this busiest time of the year.

These look so delicious! Have you ever tried using cacao butter in cookie recipes in place of butter/nut butter? I have a whole bag of cacao butter, and I’m trying to figure out how to use it haha….besides making chocolate. Merry Christmas!!
