Author Notes

This recipe is a fine creation of creamy coconut with the prominent, not overpowering, taste of rich mint chocolate. —adrienneh

  • Prep time 20 minutes
  • Cook time 45 minutes
  • Serves 2-4
Ingredients
  • Base
  • 6-8 tablespoons coconut cream fat (from can—do not use clear liquid portion. Fat is the more solid stuff usually found on top.)
  • 1.2-1.4 ounces mint chocolate bar of choice—chop/break into pieces (at least 60% cacao/cacoa content)
  • Chocolate Sauce Topping
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (I use unrefined)

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2-1 teaspoons peppermint flavor (Optional: if you want less mint taste, don’t add any flavor)
