OH how I loved Peppermint Truffles when I was in High School!

Primary School too, come to think of it. Maybe I was born loving them and their easy accessibility at school canteens simply enabled my obsession admiration.

mmmmmm… The sweet creaminess of the chocolate… The freshness of the mint…

Well what if this pair went off and got all healthy and came back reinvented as an incredibly simple, healthy and delicious power couple?

A power couple that could be ready for the party in a blink of an eye?

I’d want them in my limo. For reals.

Just ten minutes, ten ingredients, and they’re all yours. Just be warned – they’re devastatingly delicious and ripe for kidnapping! Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Raw Peppermint Slice With Chocolate Ganache [Vegan, Gluten-Free]




For the Mint Slice:

  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup tightly packed fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoons dark agave nectar
  • A large pinch of sea salt

For the Ganache:

  • 1/3 cup chopped cacao butter
  • 3/4 cup dark agave syrup
  • 1/2 cup, plus 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • A pinch of sea salt


  1. Throw all mint slice ingredients into a food processor and process on low speed until well combined and it becomes a kind of sticky dough.
  2. Push mixture into a flat dish and press down firmly and evenly to create a large slice.
  3. In a small saucepan over very low heat, gently melt cacao butter.
  4. As soon as cacao butter is barely melted, stir in all other Ganache ingredients until well-combined.
  5. Use a knife to spread a thin layer of ganache over the top of the large Mint slice.
  6. Refrigerate dish for an hour or so.
  7. Remove from the refrigerator, cut into small slices, and serve.
