Prep time: 10 mins
Total time: 1 hour, 30 mins
Yields: 24 fat bombs

Ingredients

Inner layer:

2 tsp peppermint extract
½ cup coconut oil, solid, room temperature
3 tbsp shredded coconut
2 tbsp monk fruit sweetener (use code "REALBALANCED" for 20% off Lakanto products) or erythritol
¼ cup heavy cream

Chocolate layer:

2 tbsp + 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp heavy cream
100g raw cocoa butter

Materials

Hand mixer
Silicone mold


Instructions

  1. Using a hand mixer, mix together peppermint extract, coconut oil, shredded coconut, monk fruit sweetener (or erythritol), heavy cream at speed high enough to turn mixture into paste.
  2. Scoop mixture into silicone mold. Place silicone mold in freezer and freeze until solid, about 1-2 hours.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, in 30 second increments, microwave chocolate ingredients until melted, a little over 1 minute total. (**See note below!) Stir after each microwave session. (Be very careful to watch during this process. The mixture should remain thick like melted chocolate).
  4. Remove silicone mold from freezer and pop coconut mixtures out.
  5. Using a fork, carefully dunk coconut mixture into melted chocolate, place on parchment paper, and allow to harden in freezer. (Optional: after 10 or so minutes in the freezer, remove fat bombs and drizzle remaining chocolate over the top.)
  6. Once chocolate-coating has hardened, remove from freezer and enjoy!

Store in freezer and allow to thaw and soften for 10-15 minutes prior to eating.

**The microwave used to develop this recipe and melt the chocolate was 900 watts. If your microwave is stronger, you will likely need to decrease to 50% power.
