Chocolate Mint Patties – Low Carb Keto Peppermint Patty

Welcome all! Papa G here Today I present a cool and refreshing treat

My low carbohydrate peppermint patties A lightly sweet peppermint center surrounded by a dark chocolate coating What's not to love? Let's get started We'll construct our patties by pouring 1 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes into a food processor Process a minute or two until all the flakes have broken down and begin to bind

Scrape down the sides as needed Once the coconut flakes have been broken down, add a granulated sugar substitute equal to 1/3 cup of regular sugar and pulse to mix Now add some coconut oil; a bit of water; and a half a teaspoon of peppermint extract Place the lid back on and mix until everything is combined To form our patties we'll be using a silicone mold

You can use any silicone mold you like, but the size of the mold will vary the number of patties the recipe will make With this mold we'll get about 16 patties Using a teaspoon, fill each mold to the top, pressing to compact Once filled, take a straight edge, something like this icing spatula, and run it along the top Take the excess and fill more of the molds

When the molds are filled, place in the freezer for at least 1 hour to set After about an hour remove each patty and place on some wax paper Using silicone molds makes this step very easy Set the patties aside while we work on our chocolate To make this easy will be using Lily's dark chocolate chips, pre sweetened with stevia

Pour some chips into a plastic container We don't want to use glass here as glass will retain too much heat and may cause the chocolate to separate Place the chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds Remove and stir Stirring will help distribute the heat, as microwaves don't heat very evenly

Now place back in the microwave for 10 seconds Remove and stir again This melting process requires a bit of patience, but it has a very high success rate Now it was obvious to me that I didn't have enough chocolate – who really does? – so feel free to add more Just continue to use the 10 second cook and stirring method

I think it took me about 4 or 5 times to get the chocolate where I wanted Now we're ready for the fun part Place a patty into the chocolate and with a fork, turn to coat Place the coated patty on some wax paper Repeat these steps until all the patties are coated

Place in the refrigerator to help set After a few minutes they're ready to enjoy Cool chocolatey goodness! There you have it folks! My low carbohydrate peppermint patties A cool and refreshing way to enjoy a low carb diet
