Homemade Chocolate Peppermint Patties [Vegan, Gluten-Free]
About 30 patties
- 1/3 cup coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
- 1/2 teaspoon pure peppermint extract or more to taste
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup arrowroot starch or organic cornstarch
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup dairy free semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 teaspoons coconut oil
Place the coconut milk, coconut oil, peppermint extract and vanilla extract in the bowl of a mixer. Add the starch and half of the powered sugar and beat with a mixer on low speed. Gradually add the remaining powdered sugar. Beat until a smooth dough forms.
Form the dough into a thick log (about 1 1/2-inch) diameter. Press the log tightly together so that there are no air pockets in the dough. Place a long sheet of plastic wrap on the counter or table. Wrap the dough in the plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours. Once chilled, remove from fridge and use a sharp knife to cut the log into small circles (like slice and bake cookies).
Combine the chocolate and oil in a double boiler and heat until melted and smooth. Using a fork, dip the patties one by one in the chocolate, then place on a tray lined with parchment. Let cool until the chocolate is set, then serve. Store in the refrigerator.
