Chocolate Honey Mints [V] [GF] [SF] | Fresh P. Chocolate Honey Mints are deliciously smooth, melt in your mouth chocolates, sweetened with honey; there's no refined sugar, no dairy, no gluten and no nasties. Good, clean, delicious.
1/2 cup extra virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup cacao butter
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon raw honey
1 heaping cup unsweetened cocoa powder or raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 teaspoon flaked sea salt
Over low heat gently melt the coconut oil and cocoa butter together until just melted. Let it cool for a few minutes if you're using raw honey, if not, go ahead and add the honey, cocoa powder, extract and salt. Mix well until all of the ingredients are incorporated.
Pour into molds. If you feel the honey sinking to the bottom of the pan, be sure to spoon a little honey into each mold and continue to stir it as you pour. This will help disperse the salt as well.
With a rubber scraper, smooth off the top of the molds and freeze for an hour or until candies have hardened. Remove them from their molds and store in the refrigerator or freezer, they'll melt at room temp.

This is a link to the manufacturer of the molds I use http://www.chocolateworld.be/. They're out of Belgium, but distribute them within the US.
Cocoa Butter can be purchased at natural food stores, candy making suppliers and through some chocolate shops. I buy mine from Essential Depot http://www.essentialdepot.com/ or Amazon which is where I buy Pacari, a raw organic cocoa butter that I like.
