Candy - Peppermint Patties

Submitted by: SMILES4383


Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1/2 cup coconut oil
    1/4 cup maple syrup or agave nectar
    1/2 teaspoon peppermint oil
    1/2 to 1 cup dark chocolate chips, at least 73% cacao

Directions

Directions:
1.) In a small bowl, combine coconut oil, agave nectar and peppermint oil.

2.) Freeze mixture for about 10 minutes, until the mixture begins to harden. Use a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon to measure out balls on a parchment lined plate. Place in freezer until balls begin to firm up (another 5-10 minutes).

3.) Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips using a double boiler (I assembled a heatproof bowl over a pot of boiling water). Remove from heat.

4.) Remove firm mint balls from freezer and flatten into patties using spoon. Quickly dip mint patties into melted chocolate using spoon. Cover patties completely with chocolate and place on parchment lined plate.

5.) Leave out for about 10 minutes until patties harden. Store in the freezer.
