Keto Peppermint Patties (Less Than 1 Net Carb & Even Better Than the Real Thing!)

Keto Peppermint Patties

yield: 15 SERVINGS

prep time: 60 MINUTES

total time: 60 MINUTES

Directions

1

In a medium bowl, mix together coconut oil and heavy whipping cream. Add in Swerve confectioners sweetener and mix with a handheld electric mixer until the sweetener has dissolved.

2

Add in vanilla and peppermint extract. Taste test the filling and see if you have a strong enough peppermint flavor, adding 1/2 teaspoon at a time. I start at 1 teaspoon, but I prefer a stronger peppermint flavor so I lean more toward the 2 teaspoons amount.

3

Mix until you have reached a smooth texture. Place bowl in the fridge for 15 minutes to chill. When chilled, scoop out large teaspoon mounds of the filling onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

4

Spread out filling with a butter knife or spoon to create a disc shape. Place baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes. The colder the disc is the easier it will be to dip in the warm melted chocolate.

5

While the peppermint discs are freezing, melt the chocolate by placing the chocolate chips and coconut oil in the top of a double boiler over barely simmering water. This will help keep the chocolate away from direct heat, which will allow it to melt at a low temperature to prevent scorching and separating.

 

If you are wanting to melt chocolate chips in the microwave, you can heat it in 20-second intervals making sure to stir in between each interval until you have reached a smooth melted chocolate consistency.

6

Remove peppermint filling discs from the freezer. Place the discs on a fork and dip the fork directly into the melted chocolate. Allow the excess chocolate to drip and place dipped peppermint patty onto the lined baking sheet with parchment paper.

7

Store baking sheet in the freezer until chocolate has completely hardened. Place peppermint patties in a sealed container and place in refrigerator or freezer until ready to eat. Enjoy!

York & Keto Peppermint patties on plate

Love York Peppermint Patties? 🙋🏼‍♀️

Normally peanut butter and chocolate candies are my go-to, but let me tell ya, there’s nothing better than a refreshing peppermint patty (especially if it’s straight from the fridge).

However, we all know they’re off-limits for those of us living the keto life… until now! You can still enjoy that perfect peppermint candy for dessert without all the added sugar and carbs.

Introducing keto peppermint patties!

Your sweet tooth will thank you!

From the creamy dark chocolate to the luscious smooth peppermint filling, these keto peppermint patties are simply perfect! Making sugar-free candies may seem like a daunting task, but this recipe calls for just 6 ingredients (a few you may already have!) and follows an easy mix, freeze, and coat process.

Trust me, these cool, creamy, and chocolatey bites are worth every ounce of effort!

Tips for making the best keto peppermint patties:

  • Start out with 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract and give the filling a taste test. I prefer a stronger peppermint flavor so I usually use about 2 teaspoons of peppermint extract. Add in an extra 1/2 teaspoon at a time until you are happy with the punch of flavor.
  • You might want to double the batch, not only because they are so tasty, but these little guys freeze perfectly so having some available in the freezer is perfect when you are craving a few.
  •  You can use refined coconut oil instead of unrefined if you are worried about the coconut flavor in the unrefined coconut oil.

My Hip sidekick Jenna tried out this recipe and here’s what she thought!

“These are amazing and are seriously such a fun and easy treat! My daughter loves the traditional York Peppermint Patties and I can’t believe I’ve never tried making them at home. This was actually way easier than I thought it would be and of course, my daughter is obsessed with them now. The ChocZero dark chips melted so beautifully, and dipping was a breeze. This recipe is a home run!”

      Hi Sue! Yum! Sounds delicious. Chocolate & orange go well together❤

  2. Amy

    Is there an easy way to print this recipe?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Amy! There is an option to print at both the top and bottom of the post. Hoping that helps!

      • Wendy

        The option to print–both bottom and top do not work.

          We are looking into this and will get it fixed ASAP!

  3. Andrea

    The ingredients list has 2 tsp of coconut oil added to the chocolate, but the directions only has 1 tsp added. When do I add the other tsp?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, sorry for any confusion, Andrea! Looking into this for you!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hello again! The directions have been updated to use the full amount of coconut oil in the melted chocolate. Enjoy!

    Wow these sound great but it would be almost half my carbs for the day to eat one!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi, Theresa Church! Did you see they only have 0.1 net carb per serving!

  5. Amy

    I’ve been back on the lowcarb/keto train for a few weeks now. I substituted Lilly’s and they came out great!

      That’s great to hear! We love Lily’s, too!

  6. jill hartman

    your recipe states refined coconut oil and the picture showed unrefined, does it matter?
    Thank you.

    • Ashley (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi Jill, We have updated this and you can use either one you have available. I hope you love these as much as I do.

  7. Julia

    Is there a way to print this recipe? I’ve tried to click on the print icon as well as the print button, but neither of them are allowing me to print this awesome recipe.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      We are working on fixing that, but if you hit print multiple times, it will sometimes work.
