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!
