Chocolate Mint Patties – Low Carb Keto Peppermint Patty

Chocolate Mint Patties – Low Carb Keto Peppermint Patty

July 23, 2019 26 By William Morgan


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!
