So my grandpa has always been the husband’s hero because the one time we went to visit them my grandpa had a bunch of home made candy. After the movies a few weeks back Michael and I decided to try making some of our own candy. Joyful Abode was my source of inspiration again with her awesome peppermint patties recipe.
Here’s our adaptation:
We got the 1 lb. block of 72% dark chocolate from Trader Joe’s and melted it down in the microwave. For fillings we had sun butter (my favorite), almond butter, and tasty mint goodness (Michael’s favorite).
To make the mint filling we simply mixed coconut butter with mint extract.
I’m not as cool as Joyful Abode, so I couldn’t get mine to come out looking all fancy shaping them by hand. I had to use this Wilton’s mini muffin “tin” as a mold, but it worked out great! We used the tops of water bottles to hold a space for the sun butter. They were amazing!
