Ingredients

Creams
1/3cup maple syrup, cold
2 teaspoons coconut flour, sifted
1/2teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure peppermint extract
2tablespoons coconut butter, softened
pinch sea salt
1/2cup coconut oil, melted
Coating
1/2cup chopped dark chocolate
2teaspoons unsweetened dark chocolate (100% cacao), chopped
1/4 pure peppermint extract

Instructions

  1. Make the creams: Place all the ingredients, except the coconut oil, in a small bowl and use a hand mixer to combine.
  2. With the mixer on low, slowly pour in the coconut oil. Mix until fully incorporated.
  3. Chill the mixture until firm, about 1 hour.
  4. Scoop the mixture into small balls, then press them between the palms of your hands to form patties.
  5. Freeze the patties on a parchment-lined baking sheet until hard.
  6. Make the coating: Melt the topping ingredients in the top of a double boiler over simmering water and stir until melted. Cool for 5 minutes.
  7. Using 2 forks, dip the frozen patties in the chocolate, scraping off the excess on the side of the bowl. Place on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  8. Freeze until chocolate hardens. Store in an airtight container in the fridge up to 1 week, or in the freezer up to 3 months.
