This weekend was really really something else!
We got ENGAGED!
Before I share with you the most perfect little recipe, I’ll tell you a gist of the story 🙂 My mom and my brother came into town to celebrate Mike’s mom’s 60th birthday, or so I thought. On Sunday morning after the party, Jax came into the bed with a card and a bow tucked into his collar and Mike with the GoPro strapped to his head. He told me he found a card when shopping for his mom’s, and to go ahead and read it. Half disheveled from a late night and just waking up, I read the sweetest card with Jax snuggling up at my side, and Mike fidgeting next to me. The card was left open ended so I looked up at Mike and that was when he took out the box with the ring inside and asked me to marry him. It was the most amazing moment ever and so beyond perfect. In our home, with our puppy, and with my family there to celebrate! I feel so lucky.
Now that you’ve heard the story, let’s move on to the recipe of the day. Creamy Peppermint Coconut Cups. These make the absolute perfect little treat. Of course, I threw in some peppermint in good measure for St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow. I also sprinkled mine with coarse pink sea salt because chocolate + sea salt is just the greatest combination.
I made another batch when we had family over last weekend with the extra coconut butter mixture. SO. GOOD. Everyone was a fan.
