How to Make Skinny Mints

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, peppermint extract, and sea salt until a thick dough forms. Add a few drops of water, if needed to keep the dough from being crumbly.
  3. Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper. Roll out until 1/4" thick. Cut into 1" circles and place the cut-out cookies on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 7-9 minutes, or just until the cookies have set in the center. Remove and cool completely.
  5. Once the cookies are cool, heat together the chocolate ingredients in a small saucepan or microwaveable glass bowl. Stir until smooth. Dip the cookies into the chocolate. Return the dipped cookies to the parchment-lined baking sheet. Once all cookies have been dipped, place them in the fridge until the chocolate hardens.
  6. For best results, store in fridge until ready to serve.
