          Directions
          1. Leaving out the mini dark chocolate chips, place all ingredients in a food processor.
          2. Blend until smooth, making sure to scrape the sides.
          3. Stir in the chocolate chips, then chill for 20 minutes.
          4. While the dough chills, preheat the oven to 350°F.
          5. Roll the chilled dough into little balls, then flatten them. They should be about the size of a quarter.
          6. Place on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet.
          7. Bake for 15–18 minutes.
          8. Cool completely on the baking sheet. (This helps make them crunchy!)
          9. Once cookies have cooled completely, melt the chocolate for the coating.
          10. In a microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate and coconut oil.
          11. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between until completely melted.
          12. Once chocolate is melted, add the peppermint oil and stir.
          13. Dip the cookies in the chocolate, then place on a foil- or parchment-lined pan.
          14. Cool until the chocolate hardens.
          15. Store in an airtight container.
