A quickie kind of post, for a quickie kind of recipe. However, these are so gosh-darn good, that they really don’t need much of an explanation. I’m addicted. Remember thin mints, the ones you ate as a kid? Well this is my Raw/Vegan version of the Thin Mints. A must try!

For the Chocolate

1/2 Cupmelted Cacao butter

1/2 Cup melted coconut butter (for a firmer thin mint, sub coconut butter/oil with cacao butter)

1/2 Cup maple syrup

1 1/2 Cups cacao powder

Sea salt to taste

For the Mint mixture

3/4 Cup dehydrated coconut

1 1/2 Cups packed coconut meat

3 TB coconut butter/oil

1 TB maple syrup

1-2 packets of stevia

1 1/2 tsp mint extract

1/2 tsp spirulina (coloring agent)

Salt to taste

Instructions
1. Blend all ingredients together until smooth. If need be, you may need to add a bit of water to keep contents in blender moving.
2. Paper or silicone mini-baking cups
3. Line a miniature cupcake pan with baking cups.
4. Pour a small amount of chocolate in the bottom of each cup.
5. Next, drop a small amount of the mint mixture on top of the chocolate layer.
6. Cover mint mixture with more chocolate sauce.
7. Once all cups have been poured, place in freezer to firm.

Viola – you’re done! Like I said, I’m addicted – And, I love the contrast of the hard outer shell with the soft and gooey minty inside – Ahhh, so heavenly.

Enjoy!

    What exactly do you mean by “packed coconut meat” – what kind of coconut meat, since dehydrated coconut would be coconut meat too -and packed after being cut up or what? (if this question is dumb, I apologize, but being new to raw, it helps to have specifics. Thanks.

    Not a dumb question at all! Packed coconut meat is just the fresh meat from young Thai coconuts (the white stuff). If you needed a substitute for some reason, I’m sure you could replace the fresh meat with more dehydrated coconut, or, even cashews would most likely work.

    Hope that helps and sorry for the confusion :)

    Oh – and packed as in just pressed down. When you scoop out the meat, it’s kind of in big pieces, so just press it down in your measuring cup.
