I found this yummy recipe that was a copy of one of the yummiest winter-time (or any time) treats!

Very few ingredients, and didn’t take too long to make. This is adapted from http://www.chocolatecoveredkatie.com—she had it set for what seems like one person, but I had to quadruple it!

Chocolate Peppermint Patties (about 12 in mini muffin tins)

3 TBS water

1/2 C coconut butter (to make just food process shredded raw coconut till butter consistency)

1/2 tsp pure peppermint extract (or as desired)

2 TBS agave or pure maple syrup, or stevia drops to taste

1/2 grapeseed oil (you can use coconut oil but it makes the chocolate taste like it…grapeseed is neutral)

1 cup cocoa powder

3 TBS water

1/2 C raw agave or pure maple syrup

Combine first 4 ingredients in a little bowl. (Best if the coconut butter is not melted.) In a separate bowl, combine last 4 ingredients. In candy molds or cupcake liners, spread out 1/2 of the chocolate, then portion the mint filling on top. Finally, cover with the rest of the chocolate and freeze until chilled.

    This looks like a fantastic recipe. I tend to make smaller portions of recipes in case I don’t like them or if I like them too much! I would sub out maple syrups and go for Stevia, Xylitol or even try this with a touch of dextrose.
