Healthy Peppermint Patties
OR you could call these "Healthy Andes Mints" :)
These are a patient favorite!!!
1/2 cup coconut butter
2 Tbsp organic virgin coconut oil
4 Tbsp raw honey (or liquid Stevia to taste if on Candida Detox)
1/4 tsp PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL
1 bag Lilly's Dark Chocolate Chips
1/3 cup organic coconut oil
1-1/2 Tbsp raw honey
1/4-1/2 tsp PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL
Line a mini muffin tin with 12 liners and set aside.
FOR THE WHITE LAYER
In a medium bowl, combine coconut butter, coconut oil, honey, and peppermint essential oil. Stir until smooth. Put a small amount in each muffin liner and press into the bottom so they are even. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to harden.
FOR THE CHOCOLATE LAYER
Combine the chocolate chips, coconut oil, and honey in a pan over medium heat until smooth. You just want to warm it enough that there are no lumps, but don’t boil it or heat it too long. Turn off the heat and add the PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL.
Take the muffin tin out of the freezer and spoon the chocolate mixture on top of the white layer. Place back in the freezer for 30 minutes or until completely hard. Store in a bag or covered dish in the fridge or freezer.
These are great to have on hand for a quick, healthy chocolate (magnesium) fix that won't spike your blood sugar ;)
NOTE: You can also skip the white layer if your in a hurry and just use the chocolate part.

Okay, I just made these. DELISH! I used peppermint flavor as opposed to peppermint essential oil however, because more than a couple drops of peppermint essential oil in other desserts I've made is too strong, so I can't imagine 1/2 tsp of it! ;) I also used stevia since I'm on the candida detox. Thank you for this wonderful recipe :)
