From Elena’s Pantry

½ cup coconut oil
¼ cup agave nectar
½ teaspoon peppermint oil (I used organic)
½ to 1 cup dark chocolate chips, melted
In a small bowl, combine coconut oil, agave and peppermint oil, mixing with a spoon
Smash clumps of coconut oil against side of bowl until mixture is smooth
Freeze mixture for a few minutes until it starts to harden, then remove from freezer
Use a 1.5 teaspoon ice cream scoop to measure out little balls onto a parchment paperlined plate
Place plate in freezer to firm up mint balls; when firm, remove from freezer
Squish balls down into flat little patties on parchment paper
Dip patties into melted chocolate (use spoon to drop patty into melted chocolate, dip and remove)
Place patties on parchment paper to harden (takes 10 minutes though on a summer day you may need to refreeze)
Makes about 12 patties
