I am the worst gift-giver in all the land. I have good intentions; I just don’t like spending money. I know! It’s so weird. I am an underspender. What is an underspender? Besides from the obvious implications of the name there are some very annoying consequences of being an underspender.

The perfect Homemade Peppermint Patty Recipe

  • Underspenders look for the best price but are them often disappointed in the quality so they end up purchasing the item twice.
  • Underspenders see something they like but put off purchasing it until later…often too late.

Okay I’m not a straight up underspender- I’m happy and healthy and I treat myself (and others), but I just didn’t get the shopping gene passed on. Possibly because neither my parents not grandparents were spenders.

    I’m thinking that the coconut oil goes into the melted chocolate to soften it and not in with the peppermint mixture.

      The coconut oil goes into the peppermint candy mixture. You could use coconut oil or shortening to thin the chocolate if needed as well.

    Does the coconut oil need to be in its solid form or is the liquid form ok?

    Coconut oil goes well with the white chocolate. I tried to cook it for my little brother. He likes everything sweet and smelly:)
