To make this sugar-free version of thin mints/peppermint patties, I used a combination of coconut butter and coconut oil. And they turned out fantastic!
Chocolate covered thin mints are pure childhood nostalgia for me. I don’t have that many childhood memories in regards to food. I was a picky eater as a child and to be honest, my mum never enjoyed cooking (and wasn’t too good at it either) so food was never really a big deal.
But one thing I remember from my childhood Christmasses: Thin mints with chocolate.
The traditional Danish recipe for thin mints are made almost entirely from sugar. My version is quite different from that. It’s sugar-free and instead it contains lots of healthy fats. But it still has that sweet, cooling and fresh taste.
