Peppermint Patties

This weekend, I enjoyed some quality time with close friends.  In keeping with the green theme of the weekend, I went searching for gluten free St. Patrick’s Day themed food.  It was tougher than I thought, but I came across this AMAZING recipe for homemade peppermint patties from Elena’s Pantry.  I was a little skeptical… that is, until I tasted the final product.  It was a real peppermint patty!  I couldn’t believe how real these tasted, and how easy they were to make.  Thanks, Elena!
