Homemade Peppermint Horse Muffins

Mmmm, I got on a "baking" kick the other night, and decided to make Horse Treats for Nelson's Barn Buddies.

They are easy peasy!!!! All you need is:

Preheat Oven to 350

1 small/mini Muffin Tin (Mine makes 24)
3 Cups of Flour
3 Cups of Uncooked Oats (Oatmeal)
1 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 1/2 Cup of Water (Add as needed)
3/4 Cup of Molasus
Bag of Roun Peppermints.

Mix all together as well as you can, not leaving any loose materials in mixing bowl. Add Water or Malusus as needed. You can make them darker if you want - your choice.

Scoop them into your Mini Muffin Tin, and bake for about 15 - 20 minutes, until they are not mooshy to the touch - lol..if that's a word

While they are baking, take your peppermints, and a hammer, and break in 1/2 softly. Hit middle of peppermint with hammer...tap until it breaks in half.

As soon as you pull the Muffins out of the oven, quikly pace the Peppermint halves onto, so that when they cool, they cool with the peppermint, making the peppermint stuck solid inside so it doesn't fall off.

And voila:







I put mine in cute metal buckets, lined with xmassy gift paper, and wrote the names of those whom Nelson wanted to give them to *His barn buddies*




Great, cheap gift idea

I got the metal buckets at a local craft store, they were on sale 1/2 off from $5.00, so I got them super cheap :)

These make great gifts!

Awesome idea. I might start cooking some up! Thanks for the recipe :)

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
