Yay, movie theater candy! For some kids, the promise of a special sweet treat when the lights turn low is the best part of movie night. And while there’s nothing like dressing up and heading out to the theater, it’s amazing what you can do to transform an ordinary dinner at home around the TV into an evening of movie magic.
We love this Copycat Junior Mints recipe because it does a great job recreating that iconic burst of minty chocolate we always cherished as kids. Plus, this version is a lot healthier than the original and pretty easy to whip up with no extra sugar and just 4 ingredients! You can use refined or unrefined coconut oil for this recipe. Just know the unrefined oil will have a coconut taste. Make sure to get an early start on the prep work — these cool candies will need to chill in the fridge a bit before showtime.
