Raw Thin Mint Peppermint Patties

It all started with a hankering for a peppermint patty. A week later, I have three delicious, perfected recipes that can combine in a multitude of ways. Chocolate wafer cookie? Thin mint? Peppermint Patty? Minty “Oreo”? You can make them all. And to top it off, I used leftover nut-milk pulp for the cookies.

All of the above were made from just three recipes. They are: Chocolate Cookies, Mint Filling and Chocolate Coating. From those three recipes, you can make all the options pictured!

I have been working on a recipe for a hard chocolate coating that will stay shiny but not be sticky. I have no patience for tempering and want a great taste. After a few experiments, I found a formula I love. And it works great for all of the treats above. The recipe is below.

A quick note: at times, I find things for the kitchen that I just can not resist. One of my latest transgressions was this Mini Whoopie Pie Pan. I knew I would never make mini whoopie pies, but I could see the potential for raw food. It makes a great mold! Just pack the raw dough into the cups, freeze and pop it out. If you are into that sort of thing, this pan works great. (click the link to order one)

    I made these this week! They were a hit at work. I used a cupcake pan instead (worked beautifully) and froze when the recipe called to “chill.” They taste like mint chocolate chip ice cream! So good!

    Hi! I’m actually making the cookies but they don’t stick, so I can’t roll and flatten it… any tricks and/or is it normal???
    thank you!

      You can try adding just a little water. But be careful, too much will ruin it. I would press them, not try to roll them.

    You can chop it fine or melt it. 🙂

    I’m going to make this chocolate coating to ice a cake, because some of the guests are allergic to other icing. When measuring the cacao butter, what weight would a half cup measure as, or do I have to chop it really fine to use a measuring cup?

    This was such a GREAT recipe! Very fun and easy! All my co-workers think I’m crazy because I eat “weird” stuff, but they LOVED these! I think the recipe made like 20 pieces but I ended up with maybe 4 after everyone devoured them, and I only have 8 co-workers, it was AWESOME! 🙂 YEY! Thank You for the recipe! I will use this recipe constantly!

    OH, I don’t have cacao butter, what brand do you use and where do you get it?

      There is a link to the cacao butter I use right in the recipe. Just mouse over it and click.

    I have been wanting Oreos so bad!! I can’t wait to try these, I will be substituting coconut milk pulp and carob powder, I’ll try to let you know how it turns out. I think i will need less sweetner and maybe more moisture. We’ll see!
