Was really wanting some peppermint patties (pregnancy cravings. ...) but I'm trying really hard to keep healthy during this pregnancy and avoid suger, so I took a stab at making some. They are a different texture and the cream cheese gives it a slight tang but I think they turned out fabulous! And I only had to eat one to fill the craving :)
Chocolate mint creams
For the chocolate prep 2 batches of skinny chocolate from the Trim healthy mama book page 371. Make to your taste. This recipe will not end being considered "skinny" so feel free to add stuff if you want.
4 oz cream cheese
2 tbs butter
1 tsp mint extract (or to taste, you can use oil but I don't have any so I used extract)
1/2 tsp vanilla
Sweetener to taste
Take your choice of mold, I used a mini muffin pan, an scoop a small layer of chocolate and put in the freezer to harden while making the cream. In a bowl mix the ingredients for cream together till smooth and is to your taste. Pull out the chocolate when set and add a layer of the mint cream spreading out smooth, top with more chocolate then put back in the freezer till set and store in a Ziploc or container in the fridge or freezer.
