My kids love special treats when they get home from school. I have been trying to get in the habit of having a special sweet treat for them about once a week for their after school snack. Their excitement when they hit the front door and smell something baking is so much fun.
Matthew LOVES brownies. They don’t have to special brownies, he loves brownies from a brownie mix. The girls will enjoy them but they aren’t their favorite treat. I recently heard about making peppermint brownies with Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil. The kids weren’t sure about it but now any time they see brownies they quickly ask “Are they peppermint brownies?” because they ALL love peppermint brownies!
A recipe can’t be simpler than the one for peppermint brownies either.
1. Get your favorite brownie mix (or if you are all June Clever and make them from scratch, go for it!) and mix it up according to the directions.
2. Add 1-2 drops of Young Living Peppermint Oil*.
3. Bake as directed and enjoy!
* Only Young Living essential oils are safe for internal consumption.
