Do you like chocolate and mint? This homemade coconut oil mint chocolate recipe is delicious, and a great way to add some healthy coconut oil to your diet.
I don’t think that these mint chocolates taste coconutty, but we eat a lot of coconut products here so my taste buds are probably dulled when it comes to coconut. If you don’t want your chocolates to have any coconut taste, just substitute refined coconut oil for the virgin coconut oil called for in the recipe.
Blender: I highly recommend using a blender for this recipe. It makes mixing very simple, plus the extra power of the blender ensures that the honey emulsifies with the rest of the ingredients. I use this blender.
Silicone chocolate molds: Silicone chocolate molds greatly simplify the process of making your own chocolates. I really like this set of chocolate molds, which is very economical but still high-quality, as far as I can tell. I’ve been making my own chocolates for years and have amassed a small collection of molds, which makes the process extra fun. 🙂 If you’re interested in making your own chocolates and other coconut oil treats, I highly recommend owning a few silicone molds.
If you don’t have any molds, you can also just pour your chocolate mixture into a baking dish lined with parchment paper. The downside of this method is that the chocolates melt very quickly when you chop them into smaller pieces, so it’s a pretty messy process.
- 1 cup virgin coconut oil
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 1/4 teaspooon vanilla extract
- 3/4 teaspoons peppermint extract
- Dash of salt
- Gently melt about half of your coconut oil on your stovetop.
- While the coconut oil is melting, add the other half of your oil and all other ingredients to your blender. Add the melted coconut oil once it's liquidy.
- Blend until all ingredients are evenly mixed.
- Pour chocolate mixture into molds. Put molds in the freezer until chocolates are firm, which generally takes about 20 or 30 minutes.
- When chocolates have hardened, pop them out of your molds and store in a lidded container in the freezer.
