Cooking With Oils: Peppermint Brownies

December 24, 2017

The first time my sister-in-law tasted these brownies, she welcomed me into the family. I won her over with these brownies, so they have got to be great, right? Although the ones I fed her had Resse's Peanut Butter cups pressed into the top of the batter before baking, the recipe itself is the same! They are moist, chocolate-y and now they have Peppermint Essential Oil!

Quality Oils Matter

If you decide to use Peppermint Essential Oil in your food, or any essential oil, they need to be CPTG, or Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. Other brands have fillers, preservatives and additives that are NOT safe to ingest. If you want to get quality essential oils, you can shop here, or learn how to save 25% here!

Are they healthy?

Heck no! They have flour, gluten, lots of sugar and butter but, for the occasional celebration, they are a crowd pleaser!
