You’ll love this vegan and paleo recipe for Homemade Peppermint Patties. They are so fun and yummy, and made with only 3 ingredients. This recipe is also keto-friendly using sugar-free chocolate chips.
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, divided into 1 cup and 1/2 cup (be sure to use dairy-free chocolate chips or sugar-free chocolate chips, depending on your needs)
1/2 cup coconut butter, also called coconut manna
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
Place one cup of the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the chocolate chips in 30 second increments, stirring the chips each time. After about 1 minute and 30 seconds, the chips should be fully melted and easy to stir together.
Use a spoon to divide the melted chocolate into the bottom of your mold or mini muffin tray.
Gently tap the mold or tray on a hard surface to make sure the chocolate evenly covers the bottom of the mold.
Place the mold or tray in the freezer for about 20 minutes to harden.
Then, place the coconut butter in a small glass dish. Microwave for 30-45 seconds, or until the coconut butter is soft. Stir in the peppermint extract.
Remove your mold from the freezer and use a clean spoon to divide the coconut butter on top of the solid chocolate layer.
Then, place the mold back in the freezer for another 15 minutes to harden.
Finally, place the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 30 second increments until they are melted, about 1 minute total.
Remove the mold from the freezer and use a spoon to divide the melted chocolate on top of the patties. The chocolate should cover the white coconut butter. Gently tap the mold to smooth out the top layer of chocolate.
Place the mold in the freezer for 20 more minutes, or until the top layer has hardened.
When you’re ready to serve the Peppermint Patties, simply remove them from the mold and serve cold or at room temperature.
Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 7-10 days.
