Raw Thin Mint Peppermint Patties from Rawmazing

There is such a thing as too much sun! I love sunbathing, but this week
the heat is too intense. I just want to go inside and stay next to the
a/c unit- forget about going outside or going for a ride, a girl like
me needs to keep herself hydrated and well fed! Phew! I haven’t posted
recipes in a while, but since it’s not the ideal time for baking (and
sweating), I decided we should go for something minty cool, sweet, and
light, no ovens or stoves needed! Of course, chocolate IS toxic to dogs
and cats, so please make this delicious treat only for human
companions. Enjoy!

Chocolate Coating
▪ 1/2 cup raw cacao butter
▪ 1/2 cup raw, organic coconut oil
▪ 1 cup raw cacao powder
▪ 2-4 tablespoons raw agave or liquid sweetener of choice
▪ 1/2 teaspoon organic peppermint extract
▪ 10 drops stevia (optional if you want it a little sweeter)
1. Melt cacao butter and coconut oil in dehydrator (115 degrees) or
carefully over hot water.
2. Whisk in cacao powder, agave and optional stevia.
3. Let sit unti it thickens slightly.

Mint Filling
▪ 1 cup unsweetened, dried coconut
▪ 1/2 cup coconut oil
▪ 2 tablespoons raw agave or liquid sweetener of choice
▪ 1 teaspoon organic peppermint extract
1. Place coconut in food processor and process until it is powdered. Do
not over process or it will turn into coconut butter.
2. Add coconut oil, agave and peppermint. Pulse to combine.
3. Chill until it begins to set. If it gets hard, just warm to room
temp again.
