Ingredients

Chocolate layer:
Mint layer
  • 1 3/4 cups shredded coconut
  • Scant 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2-4 drops peppermint essential oil

Instructions

  1. To make the chocolate layer: melt the coconut oil and cacao butter in a thick pot on low heat, then whisk in the rest of the ingredients until you have a lusciously smooth chocolate mixture.
  2. Spread half this mixture evenly into the bottom of a lined pan and put in the fridge. Set aside the remaining half to use in a moment.
  3. To make the mint layer: blend everything until smooth. Spread evenly over your chocolate layer in the pan, then finish by spreading the remaining chocolate over this. Leave in the fridge for at least a few hours and slice. If they stick around longer than a day and you keep them refrigerated overnight: I'd recommend letting them sit at room temperature for around 10-15 minutes before eating so they soften.
