Back with another Peppermint recipe to share!
We are just in that kind of mood!!!
So there are peanut butter cups, almond butter cups and now... Peppermint Coconut Dream Cups!
One can NEVER have too much peppermint at Christmas time.
We came across the recipe while visiting
Living Healthy With Chocolate and without hesitation, right on the list of Christmas treats to make it went!
With our added ingredient touch.
Peppermint Coconut Dream Cups Recipe
Our additions: Added pure peppermint extract to the chocolate mixture once it was melted.
Made our own coconut butter which was so easy. Dump a bag of organic unsweetened, shredded coconut into a blender/food processor and blend until you have a very smooth consistency. Store in a jar in the cupboard. Here is a great tutorial if you need a visual.
NOTES for the next batch:
While we love coconut butter, in this recipe the sweetness comes from the inside o the cup, and we would prefer there be some sweetness on the outside as well.
Next batch, sweeten the coconut butter with a liquid sweetener.
Other than that, these are really good!
If you are up to it, give them a try to serve this Christmas!
