Vegan Peppermint Butter Chocolates

Raw, creamy vegan chocolates with peppermint oil, sweetened with maple syrup

These homemade Vegan Peppermint Butter Chocolates are creamy, rich and flavorful. With only 5 ingredients, these chocolates are very easy to make and suit most diets as they are grain free, gluten free, vegan and raw!

Making my own chocolate gives me a great sense of self-sufficiency. If I can make my own chocolate, I can take care of myself emotionally! Chocolate is undeniably the best comfort food. Ever! So when I ran out of my favorite peppermint chocolate late yesterday evening, I had no choice but to make my own.

It’s been long overdue anyway as I bought this cute star silicone mold in November and I’ve been meaning to use it! I have never worked with a silicone mold before and it took me a batch or two to create pretty chocolates – I’ll be able to share with you what I have learned in the process! It’s really simple, you just need to know what to look out for.

One tip about my star ingredient coconut butter I’d like to share right now: If you use coconut butter out of a jar, I suggest you heat the jar in a water bath to soften the butter. The coconut oil in coconut butter often collects at the top so when you scoop out a few spoonful, you may mostly get coconut oil and very little butter. Make sure you stir up your coconut butter before taking a portion out!

    Rose, this chocolate sounds wonderful. I think I’d like to try it plain before I do it with peppermint oil. Seems to me it might be good with orange extract also.

      Yes!! Orange extract would be great! I ran out of peppermint oil so I added cinnamon. You can add whatever flavor you like, really!

    The chocolates look great! I’ve never used a silicon mold but now I’d love to try it out. I love the layout of your website, Rose! I admit I’m not a clean eater but I love to read your recipes.

      Thanks for stopping by, Patty! I appreciate the support :) The silicone molds are super handy, I have only just started using them!
