Peppermint Bliss Balls

Peppermint Blissball

Annette brought this recipe using carob powder, honey, and oil of peppermint to the bakery, and it was a great success.  We are familiar with chocolate-covered peppermint patties, and this no-bake cookie captures some of this flavor.

 

INGREDIENTS

1 cp. natural salted peanut butter                                       2/3 cp. finely chopped walnuts

1/4 cp. roasted tahini                                                                        1/4 cp. carob powder

1/2 cp. honey                                                                         1/4 cp. shredded coconut

1 tsp. vanilla extract                                                              1/2 cp. raisins

1 tsp. peppermint extract

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix the peanut butter, tahini, honey, vanilla, and peppermint extract in a medium-size bowl.
  1. Finely chop the walnuts in a food processor so they are the consistency of crumbs or cornmeal. Add the chopped walnuts, carob powder, coconut, and raisins to the liquid ingredients and mix well.
  2. Cover the dough and place in the refrigerator 1-2 hours to stiffen. Remove dough from refrigerator and break off pieces to make balls 1” in diameter.  Roll the balls in chopped walnuts, shredded coconut, or sesame seeds.  Makes 40.
