Filling:

  • 1/3 cup coconut butter*
  • Food Grade Peppermint or Orange Essential Oil (I use young living oils)

*you can get coconut ‘butter’, ‘paste’ or ‘creamed’ coconut, made from ground coconut flesh, from asian grocers, some supermarkets in the asian section and health food stores.

Method:

Gently Melt and whisk chocolate ingredients together in a bowl over another bowl of hot water. Adjust flavours to your taste. Pour into desired moulds half way and set in the freezer. Meanwhile combine essential oil to taste in coconut butter. Form little balls in the centre of each mould, then cover with remaining chocolate and set.
