Vegan Mint Chocolate Thins

It’s time you made your own chocolates! Yes these little bites are really simple and quick to make AND what’s even better is they only need 4 ingredients. They just couldn’t be easier. With their rich dark chocolate exterior and their mint cream centre I’m sure they’ll remind you of a certain brand of after dinner mint…

For the coconut cream you have two options. You can buy a can of cocnut cream like the one shown in the photo (I’m not paid to promote this brand, it’s just so you can see what it looks like), or you can use a can of full fat coconut milk which has been placed in the fridge overnight. When you open the can at the top will be the thick cream and underneath the water. Just use the cream which is on top and save the water for something else like using in smoothies.

  6. Meanwhile mix the coconut cream, mint extract and agave syrup in a small bowl.
  7. Remove the mould from the freezer.
  8. With a teaspoon place a small amount of the mint cream in each mould.
  9. Return to the freezer 30 minutes.
  10. Melt the rest of the chocolate in the same way as before.
  11. Remove the mould from the freezer.
  12. Top the coconut cream with a layer of melted chocolate.
  13. Return to the freezer for another 30 minutes.
  14. Enjoy.
  15. It’s best to store these in the fridge, especially in warm weather.
