OK, I promise that this is my very last chocolate peppermint dessert of the season. I’ve been mildly obsessed with raw cacao and peppermint extract. But, hey! Who doesn’t love gummy treats? So here is one more holiday reipe for you: Chocolate Peppermint Gummy Treats.
We don’t take a lot of supplements at our house, but gelatin is definitely something we consume on a regular basis. There are so many health benefits of gelatin that I make sure to get as much into our diets as possible. Making homemade bone broth is my favorite way to get gelatin into my diet. Strong hair, nails, bones, and teeth, as well as a healthy gut lining are good things to have. Right? Read more HERE on the health benefits of gelatin.
But my family LOVES when I make gummy treats. Raspberry, Strawberry, Coconut Mango… they don’t care. They love them all. But this recipe is just for me. After making my Peppermint Chocolate Cookie Balls and my Flourless Peppermint Brownies, I was hooked on the rich taste of raw cacao and peppermint together. So why not make them into a gummy treat?
This recipe works great with cute little molds like THIS but you can just pour it into a glass baking dish and cut after it sets.
Like I said before, these little gummies were made for me. Unfortunately, my family found them and quickly decided that these were their favorite kind. I guess I have to make a double batch next time. ENJOY!
