What is Thrive Market?

If you are like me, there are many ads on my Facebook timeline and new ones pop up everyday. Facebook has been smart about how they promote their sponsored posts and all the ads I scroll through are things I am interested in, likely due to the pages I like and things I post – brilliant!

One I have seen over the last couple months is Thrive Market.

Like Costco or other warehouse clubs, Thrive Market is membership

non-GMO, healthy products. You can simply browse the website,
fill your cart with whatever products you like, and have your order

Paleo Chocolate Peppermint Bark

Tis the season to combine the ever delicious chocolate and mint! In my eyes, bark is a holiday treat that comes around annually so I thought I would try a healthy twist on this festive dessert. Here is my recipe, let me know if you try it out and what you think!

Serves: 8

INGREDIENTS

3/4 cup melted coconut oil

1 cup cocoa powder

3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

2 drops of peppermint oil ( you could use extract but I use the real stuff)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

dash of salt

1 crushed candy cane

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt the coconut oil in a microwave safe container or on the stove – I don’t like extra dishes so I used the microwave option.
  2. Add coco powder to dish and mix.
  3. Add maple syrup, vanilla, peppermint and dash of salt and stir again.
  4. Place wax paper on dish. The texture should be a liquid and easy to spread on a baking sheet or plate.
  5. Add the melted bark to the wax paper covered dish you are using.
  6. Break the candy cane with a hammer inside a plastic bag and sprinkle on top of bark.
  7. Place dish in the freezer for 1 hour.
  8. Break apart with your hands, eat and ENJOY!
