Peppermint during Christmas time is practically required. I used to love candy canes and the peppermint bark that came around every Christmas. Now, that I’m low carb I make my own peppermint treats.
This could probably also be used as a fat bomb for those that do the keto diet, especially is you left off the chocolate.
Low Carb Peppermint Patties
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup Splenda
2 tsp. peppermint extract
1/2 of a whole bar of unsweetened chocolate (no sugar at all)
2 Tbl. Spenda
1 tsp. vanilla
Start by adding the coconut oil, 1/4 cup Splenda, and the peppermint extract together in a bowl. Stir until it is as smooth as possible. Set aside. In a microwave safe bowl, put chocolate. Melt. Add to melted chocolate 2 Tbl. of Splenda and vanilla in a bowl.
In 3 to 4 cupcake liners, put the coconut mixture. Then place the chocolate mixture on top. (Mine got pretty thick so I rolled it between my hands and place the circle on top, but yours may be more pourable. Either way, the taste is not affected. ) Place in the refrigerator until solid and cold.
