Coconut and Dark Chocolate Patties with Peppermint Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • ¼ cup of Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp of Peppermint Oil
  • ½ tbsp of Coconut Oil
  • ½ cup of Dark Chocolate

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, place the Unsweetened Shredded Coconut (3 cups).
  2. Blend on high until the mixture forms a coarse paste. Stop the food processor and scrape down the sides of the bowl as you go.
  3. Add Maple Syrup (1/4 cup), Coconut Oil (1 tsp) and Peppermint Oil (1 tsp) to this mixture.
  4. Then, blend on high for a few minutes more until the ingredients are well combined.
  5. Take a tablespoonful of the mixture, firmly pack it together, shape it into a ball, and flatten it into a disc. Place the disc on a cooling rack or baking paper-lined tray. You should get 12 patties. To harden, place in the refrigerator.
  6. Next, melt the dark chocolate (1/2 cup) and the remaining coconut oil (1 tsp). Remove the Coconut and Dark Chocolate Peppermint Patties from the fridge and throw away the baking paper.
  7. Dip the patties in the melted dark chocolate with a fork. Then, tap off the excess chocolate and place on a cooling rack. Put it back in the fridge to harden.
