Homemade Peppermint Patty
Aw peppermint patty. movies, childhood memories. I loved the dark chocolate, creamy pepperminty filling. Fond memories.
Well, now I’m mostly vegan – I do indulge in eggs and dairy on occasion. I’m still perfecting this lovely treat, but here’s where I’m at right now.
Ingredients for Peppermint Patties
for the patty
1/3 Cup Organic Cocount Oil at room temperature
1.5 Tablespoons of Honey (local is best – use agave for vegan)
3-4 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil (only high quality Certified Pure)
for the dip
1-1.5 chocolate bars 80% or higher cacao
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
Mix the above patty ingredients until well combined in a bowl. Shape as best you can into patties and place on parchment paper. Place patties in freezer.
Meanwhile, melt chocolate with about 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil, set aside to cool. Mix occasionally to keep from lumping.
When patties have chilled, dip into chocolate mixture and place back in the freezer. I did 3 dips each for a nice coating.
