Chocolate Butter Mint Chews

Chocolate Butter Mint Chews

I spend a good chunk of my day searching for articles and neat things and sometimes something catches my eye. Like these chocolate butter mint chews. I do enjoy good quality chocolate and have tried making some at home with some success. I like knowing the ingredients and even though making chocolates is a little bit labour intensive, knowing that I’ve made a tasty and healthy treat for my family is often worth it. This recipe from over on the Sweetest Lemonade looks delicious!

Chocolate Butter Mint Chews

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk, canned
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup coconut sugar

Instructions:

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, coconut milk and coconut sugar.
  2. Heat to medium heat and stir constantly as the solids melt.
  3. Once melted, add in the cocoa powder and tapioca flour, stirring all the while.
  4. Now add in your dark chocolate chips.
  5. Stir until they are completely melted into the sauce.
  6. Turn off the heat and stir in the peppermint extract.
  7. Either use a mold and carefully pour the sauce directly into the candy molds or pour the entire sauce into a greased 9×13 pan. If using the molds, I suggest using a syringe for getting the chocolate in without making a mess. I also set the molds on a cookie tray to keep them stable.
  8. Freeze for 1-2 hours until it’s hard enough to cut or pop out of the molds.
  9. Eat immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge.
  10. These are great for a candy replacement or a gift idea!
