Peppermint Patties

Well, they’re not beautiful, but they sure taste good. I spent a morning the other day testing out 3 different recipes for peppermint patties, and I’ve found a keeper! The other week I went to a sushi restaurant that served those classic peppermint patties in foil paper with our bill, and (of course) it made me want to try to make them myself!  IMG_7371 The peppermint patties are soft on the inside and have a chocolate coating that cracks when you bite into it! They’re just sweet enough with lots of peppermint flavour. Someday when I get a candy mold I will make them more beautiful looking, but for now they’re a bit quirky.IMG_7370

Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup white rice flour
  2. 1/4 cup melted coconut flour
  3. 1/2 cup full fat coconut cream*
  4. 1 tsp stevia powder
  5. 2 tbsp peppermint extract
  6. 1/4 cup melted honey

For the chocolate
  1. 1 1/2 cup unsweetened baking chocolate
  2. 1/4 cup cacao butter
  3. 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  4. 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  5. 1 tsp stevia powder
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl with a whisk
  2. Whisk for a few minutes until the mixture thickens and becomes paste-like
  3. If the mixture is still quite liquidy, place in the fridge for a couple hours until it thickens
  4. Form the thicker paste into 1" patties or blobs on a piece of parchment paper
  5. Meanwhile, in a double boiler, melt the chocolate ingredients
  6. When the patties are solid, dip and mix around in the chocolate, then place back in the freezer until they harden
  7. Store in the freezer so the chocolate keeps nice and crunchy!
Notes
  1. * put a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight, then scoop off the cream from the top to use. The milk can be used for smoothies later!
