Homemade Peppermint Patties
Every year I like to re-create a slightly healthier version of some of my favorite Halloween treats. This year I decided to try making peppermint patties replacing the sugar with agave. It turned out really well!
- ½ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup agave nectar or honey
- ½ teaspoon peppermint oil
- 1 cup chocolate chunks
In a small bowl, combine coconut oil, agave and peppermint oil, mix well until smooth. Put mixture in freezer for a few minutes until it starts to solidify.
Pour mixture into a parchment-lined tray to form a 1/8" square or rectangle. Place tray in freezer until mint mixture is firm. Remove from tray and cut into squares. Melt chocolate over very low heat; allow to cool slightly.
Dip squares into melted chocolate - I like to use a fork or wooden skewer to dip into chocolate. Set on parchment paper and allow to cool.
