Schools out for summer… and the kids are HUNGRY!

Treat them with tasty, peppermint infused brownies or cookies to help satisfy their endless cravings during sleepovers or snack time.

Simply add two drops of Peppermint essential oil to your preferred brownie or cookie batter before baking and voila!
