If you have any leftovers, be sure to store them in the refrigerator or freezer, as they will not stay solid if stored at room temperature.

My husband adored these homemade Peppermint Patties, scarfing them down after work the other day. What we love about this gluten-free candy is that it melts in your mouth. The boys enjoyed them too!

  1. These sound amazing but am I dense or blind? I can’t find a button to pin recipes from this site like most others. I see different sharing buttons but not pinterest .

  2. I just made these, and they are SO GOOD!!! We are on the GAPS recipe, so I didn’t want to use chocolate with refined sugar in it. I decided to make my own chocolate using baker’s chocolate:

    60g (about 3.5T) unsweetened chocolate
    50g (about 2.5T) cocoa butter
    2 Tbsp honey
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract

    I followed the advice of some of the other comments, and froze the patties completely, and letting the chocolate “dip” come to room temperature after melting (30 minutes to wait until it comes to room temperature). The chocolate “stuck” no problem! :)

      • Hi there, I use organic food grade peppermint extract in this recipe. If you click the green text in the ingredients portion of the recipe you will be given exact info on the product I use :-)

  3. I made these about 20 minutes ago, just ate one. They are amazing, I’m extremely happy with them. Chocolate + mint = heaven.

  4. I figured it out, but the chocolate has to be as cool as possible.the coconut oil mixture has to be really cold….frozen! My non paleo family really loved them. FYI, I used raw honey to sweeten, and had to mix it at is hardened in the freezer so the honey wouldn’t separate to the bottom. Yummy.

  5. I tried this recipe, but my chocolate wouldn’t stick to the coconut oil mixture. I waited for the chocolate mix to get as cool as possible without hardening. Suggestions?
