So before we pop in a DVD, I spend a few minutes making a quick batch of organic chocolate peppermints with my son. We almost always have the four ingredients necessary to make them in our kitchen, and my son can do almost all of the work by himself. And guess what -- they taste almost exactly like the real deal! If you want to give these little yummy gems as a hostess gift, you can roll the balls yourself - imprinting the holes as you go to prevent cracking -- and you can carefully pipe the chocolate in so they look perfect! Read on to learn how to make these simple organic chocolate peppermints with your children. You can grab the one-page printable instructions here. Then, choose your favorite movie to enjoy while you have a sweet treat!
