Raw Thin Mint Peppermint Patties from Rawmazing

There is such a thing as too much sun! I love sunbathing, but this week
the heat is too intense. I just want to go inside and stay next to the
a/c unit- forget about going outside or going for a ride, a girl like
me needs to keep herself hydrated and well fed! Phew! I haven’t posted
recipes in a while, but since it’s not the ideal time for baking (and
sweating), I decided we should go for something minty cool, sweet, and
light, no ovens or stoves needed! Of course, chocolate IS toxic to dogs
and cats, so please make this delicious treat only for human
companions. Enjoy!
