Vegan Peppermint Bark Recipe

Aimee’s vegan chocolate based treat offers a perfect blend of rich dark chocolate and minty flavours. Sweetened with natural stevia it keeps sugar levels low, a guilt free way to satisfy your sweet tooth. It’s surprisingly easy to make whether you’re looking for a party treat, a gift for a friend, or an everyday snack.

Ingredients:

230g dairy-free dark chocolate

2 tablespoons coconut oil melted

The coconut fat from 1 tin of coconut milk

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 – 1/2 tsp peppermint extract

1/2 tsp liquid stevia

1/2 tsp – 1 tsp Superfood Wales wellbeing blend (for colour)

handful cocoa nibs

 

Directions:

Place a tin of coconut milk into the fridge, leave it for a couple of hours or overnight for the fat to solidify and seperate. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a bain marie (a bowl placed over a pan of gentle simmering water), stir every now and then until melted. Meanwhile, line a large baking tray with parchment, smooth out any creases. Spread chocolate with a spatula into a thin layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Put it in the fridge to set. Take your can of coconut milk out the fridge, and spoon out the fat from the can.

In a food processor, combine all ingredients. Remember, it’s best to add a little peppermint at a time. You can always add more, but you can’t take away. The same goe with the wellbeing blend. You’re looking for a light green colour.

If you need to add a little sweetness, add more stevia.

Once combined. gently spread the light green “frosting” over the top of chocolate. sprinkle some cocoa nibs and put back into the fridge to harden. Once completely dry and set, break bark into pieces and store in an airtight container in the fridge
