Recipe for Homemade Peppermint Patty Using Essential Oil Peppermint, Coconut Oil, Agave and 70% Chocolate
- 1/2 cup Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
- 1/4 cup Agave
- 8 drops Essential Oil Peppermint
- 1/2 a bar 70% Chocolate
- Melt chocolate on your wood stove. Use a double boiler, A heating plate with serving dishes or anything you have to melt the chocolate. Just put water in the serving dish and than put a small dish with cocoa chunks. Very low heat.
- While the chocolate is melting, mix the rest of the ingredients together in a separate bowl. If you want more peppermint or agave add to your taste.
- Put the mixture on one foot length of wax paper. Use same size wax paper and place it on top of mixture. Use a rolling pin and roll out the mixture till it becomes as thick as you desire. 1/4 inch is good for me.
- Unfold wax paper. Use a shot glass to stamp out each pattie. Put wax paper on cookie sheet with all punched out patties and place all in freezer for a couple minutes or until patties are hard. Put the flat mixture into the freezer. While the candy is hardening, find a cookie cutter or something that can stamp out a circle a little bigger than a quarter.
- Quickly stamp out the patties and place on a flat cookie sheet. The patties must stay cold or they will melt so stamp out as many as you can and put them in the freezer till you are ready for them to be dipped in the chocolate.
- You will have left over mixture after you stamp out what you can so just roll it up and start the same process over again till all the mixture is used up.
- Once you have all the mixture stamped out into a candy circle you are ready to dip them into the melted chocolate. Be careful, you could melt the cold candy if you submerge the candy into the chocolate.
I am not going to lie to you. The process of molding the patties before dousing them with chocolate is a little tricky. The ingredients should be cold but not frozen. The first batch I made I tried melting and put in frig too long and all was too hard so I got frustrated and cracked it in pieces and drizzled chocolate over them and oh my God what a treat. I have found that rolling out the mixture and stamping out the patties on wax paper works very, well. Let me know if you find even an easier way. I'm all ears.
Remember, the patties must stay cold when you transport them to your party or where ever. Let the lucky receivers know they must be refrigerated and served cold.
