I came up with this recipe at the request of my friend, Nicole. Please let me warn you, these are ridiculously good! Maybe it's because I am a HUGE peppermint fan, but these are amazing. Yes, these are technically all Paleo ingredients, but there is quite a bit of date (which is a sweetener my body tolerates better than others) in here, so you wouldn't want to eat these everyday! I will be making these for one of the Christmas parties I have coming up next week, garnished with some fresh mint leaves. Enjoy!!
Chocolate Peppermint Fudge
1 1/2 C Dates
1 1/2 C HOT water
3oz unsweetened baking chocolate (use whatever 'darkness' you like)
1 C Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp Pure Peppermint Extract
2 C Almond Flour
Place dates in hot water and allow them to soak while you do the next steps. Melt chocolate and coconut oil on the stove top or in the microwave.
