Mint Chocolate Bites

Makes 15 bites.
Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time4 mins
Total Time24 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup (59ml) full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp peppermint extract, divided
  • 1 cup (200g) pitted medjool dates (I packed in the dates)
  • 3/4 cup (70g) walnut halves
  • 1/3 cup (20g) unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 1/2 TBS pistachios, optional

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, heat up the coconut milk over medium-high heat. Once the coconut milk boils remove the saucepan from heat.
  • Pour in the chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract, and stir until you get a creamy chocolate sauce.
  • Mix the medjool dates, walnuts, flaked coconut, and 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract in a food processor until everything is chopped to tiny bits. Take a tablespoon of the date mixture, squeeze it tight, then form it into a ball. Feel free to make these into larger bites.
  • Dip each bite into a bit of the mint chocolate ganache. Garnish with pistachios or your favorite toppings!
  • You can eat these right away or freeze them for 15 minutes to let the ganache set. Refrigerate the bites and any leftover ganache in separate containers.
