Homemade Junior Mints Recipe

I made you Homemade Junior Mints!  Junior Mints are a childhood favorite for many people.  If you are not familiar with Junior Mints, they have a minty soft center covered by chocolate.  Junior Mints have always been my husband’s favorite candy, so I set out to make a clean recipe for them.  Here is the ingredient list for Junior Mints that I found at Ask.com:

“Sugar, semi sweet chocolate, corn syrup, modified food starch, confectioner’s glaze, invertase, soya albumin and gelatin.” 
Okay, I don’t even have a clue why they need so many ingredients.  Especially weird ones like invertase?  What the heck is that??  I am proud to say my Homemade Junior Mints only contain simple ingredients!

Chocolate Mint Cookie Dough Bites

Chocolate Mint Cookie Dough Bites.  With St. Patrick’s day coming up, I am trying to think of some vegan friendly desserts.  This recipe came to me after I made my No Bake Vegan Nutella Bites.  These chocolate mint bites remind me of eating mint chocolate chip ice cream.

They are like Thin Mints without the guilt!  These little balls of goodness are vegan, dairy free, soy free and can easily be made gluten free by using gluten free oats.

The best part?  They can be made in 5 minutes.  Since there is no egg in this cookie dough recipe, it’s safe to eat right out of the food processor.

I had to stop my daughter before she ate most them!  They go really well with homemade almond milk.  Yum!
