Spiced Chocolate Coconut Creams

choc. spiced coconut cream done with slice

A few Christmases ago I made peppermint patties as part of my Christmas gift baskets. I thought I would start experimenting with some different recipes to come up with something a little healthier. A traditional peppermint pattie filling is made with confectioners sugar, which I wanted to avoid. While this filling won’t melt in your mouth, like  a traditional pattie, it is still smooth and creamy, with a lot less sugar.

This recipe made 40 candies, the amount you make may differ based on the type of silicone molds you use.

Filling Ingredients:

1/2 C. Coconut Butter

3/4 C. Spiced Almond Milk

3 Tbsp. Maple Syrup

 

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a high speed blender. Blend till smooth and creamy.

Chocolate coating:

1-1/2 C. Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

1-1/2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil

Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in double boiler. Stir till melted.

Remove candy from freezer.Place candy on a fork and dip in melted chocolate.

Remove excess chocolate by dragging the fork across the rim of the chocolate pan.
