Ingredients

Heat Gently

Remove from Heat and Add

Place in Mixing Bowl

Chocolate Coating

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan gently, on low heat water, Xanthan gum, sweetener, and coconut oil. Once coconut oil melts and mixture has thickened, remove from heat.
  • Remove from heat and add peppermint extract and powdered erythritol (we like Swerve).
  • In a medium mixing bowl, add 2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes (make sure you get the SMALL shreds) and pour in thickened peppermint mixture. Use a spatula and stir to combine.
  • Mold into 1 tablespoon shapes of your choice. Ours made 22 shapes. We used this round silicone mold for ours.
  • Place in freezer for approx. 1 hour.
  • While candies are hardening, about 5 minutes before they hit the 1-hour mark, make the chocolate coating.
  • In a saucepan gently heat coconut oil and butter. Heat on low until melted and you can see steam coming up -- do not boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips and vanilla.
  • Remove peppermint candies from mold and coat each one. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and stick in freezer for about 20 minutes.
    Enjoy!
