Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies


I got some raves on these babies! They're crazy tasty and you can either add young living peppermint or orange essential oils.  Make sure you're not skimping on the quality and only use Young Living essential oils! 

Also, check the bottle because Young Living states if it's dietary and many other brands are not GRAS aka digestible! 

Now, on to the recipe for Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies! 

Ingredients

  • 1 box brownie mix 
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 8 drops of Young Living Peppermint Essential Oils (or 8 drops of Young Living Orange Essential Oils)
  • 1 cup Nestle Toll House SemiSweet Chocolate Chips
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar (reserve for coating dough balls)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place brownie mix, flour, eggs, butter and peppermint oil in glass mixing bowl. Stir until blended. (Dough will be uber stiff.) Fold in chocolate chips. 
  3. Place powdered sugar in separate bowl. For each cookie, scoop 1 rounded tablespoon dough and place in powdered sugar.  Note: I use those little Mellon ball type scoopers that look like an ice cream scoop.  Roll dough gently into balls, coating thoroughly with powdered sugar.
    Place 2 inches apart on to a pizza stone or on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake 11-13 minutes, or until they are just barely set (do not over bake). You don't want hard cookies like biscotti to dip in your coffee or hot chocolate! Or maybe you do? Carefully, move them to a cooling rack to cool completely. 
  5. Store in a covered container. If they get too dry and hard, put a piece of bread in the container to soften overnight. 

    I also have a private group on Facebook that has more recipes and discusses the Young Living Essential Oils.  If you do not already have someone that you purchase the oils through nor a Young Living account currently, pleaseClick here to email me and ask to be added to the group! 

    Peppermint is an oil that is included in the Premium Starter Kit or available in a single 15 ml bottle through me.

Capture the Moment

I have to tell you that, while taking pictures at my son's concert at school as we scrapbookers do to capture the moment, mind you i was hopping from chair to chair with what looked like a private session of musical chairs to get the right angle, as we do as photographers, I was rockin it with Mark! Mark is what I call my camera. Anyway, I was getting proficient at finding a chair and knowing the lay of the land too. Ok so, I thought! I didn't even need to look for the chair.  A little angel aka student, moved a chair without me knowing and I went from standing to butt on the ground! Needless to say, deep relief roll-on is helping my sore behind and back from the eloquent butt landing!

Happy New Year

Perhaps, it is the end of year reflection or that I see so many posts for prayer requests in my Facebook timeline for the health of themselves, loved ones or the heartbreaking loss of so many they love or the loss of a fellow mom that I got to know about 6 years ago who tragically took her life, I have been thinking seriously about my friendships, the health of my family and myself and so many things that I am grateful for as well as what can be improved upon.  Be grateful for the good things or you'll never be grateful for anything. Make changes now so, you do not have regrets when perhaps it is too late. Sometimes when you think it is too late, it's not so, reach up and get up to fix things! You CAN do it! 

The ultimate life was a great movie with little gems. In the movie, they called it a golden list but, it's making a gratitude list daily.  Writing them down in a journal or a post it on your fridge, computer or wherever you see it! 10 things you're grateful for everyday. 

I've been reading a book that this just seems to resonate with me and really went with this man's quest.  There are 7 key areas that must be balanced and grow to live the life of your dreams. They are fitness, family, finance, faith, field, friends and fun.  If you are not in balance, it may propel you in one area at a much greater cost of so much more! 

I will be taking some time to sit down and not only make a note of my gratitudes but, to reflect on the 7 key areas and find my balance & grow points. Many of my gratitudes for 2014 have been because of the improvements made with and around young living essential oils.  It has helped me to find #oola. 

2015 Goals for a Happy Year & Improved You! 
Did you know that smells shape our moods, behavior and decisions through our olfactory system? They can even control your behavior without conscious effort. 


These are the top 10 things that we will commit to in the new year and the essential oils that can help you achieve your goals through the power of scent. We've all broken a New Year's resolution in the past but, not this year. This year, we're kicking the bad habits and living a longer, happier and more significant life. 2015 is our year! 



Lose weight, volunteer, quit smoking, go to school, get a new job, save money, reduce stress, eat healthy / get fit, reduce debt, take a vacation. If you have other goals, let's talk personally about those! 

What are your #gratitudes and what are your goals for the new year?
