Prep Time 5 minutes


  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 15-20 drops peppermint essential oil


  1. In a large bowl, add coconut oil. There are a few different consistencies of coconut oil. If your coconut oil is hard, you can microwave it until it gets softer.- that makes it easier to combine into the sugar.

  2. Next add sugar and stir together until combined. You can add more coconut oil if it's too dry or more sugar if it seems to wet. It should be a grainy consistency.

  3. Add essential oil and stir.

  4. Add a little red sugar or 1 finely crushed candy cane (optional)

  5. Scoop into lidded containers. This recipe makes about 10 ounces. You can double or triple the recipe if you are making these as gifts.
