Homemade Halloween Candy: Peppermint Chocolates and Peanut Butter Bites

Updated: Nov 6, 2022

These treats are great healthier alternatives to store-bought candy. The main ingredient in both of these recipes is cocoa butter, which is a plant-based superfood. They are free of refined sugar, sweetened only with honey.


All that is required is a few simple ingredients and some fun shaped silicone molds.


PEPPERMINT CHOCOLATES


Ingredients:

4oz cocoa butter

1/2 cup honey

2 Tbsp cashew butter

1 Tbsp vanilla

1 Tsp cocoa powder (omit for SCD)

1/2 tsp salt

5 drops of pure therapeutic grade peppermint essential oil or peppermint extract.


PEANUT BUTTER BITES


Ingredients:

4 oz cocoa butter

1/2 cup honey

3 tbsp peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp salt


Follow these DIRECTIONS for both recipes:

1. Melt the cocoa butter in a saucepan on the lowest heat until it is fully liquified.

2. Whisk in the rest of the ingredients until fully incorporated.

3. Transfer mixture into a glass vessel with a pour spout.

4. Arrange silicone molds on a baking tray for ease of transfer.

5. Pour mixture into molds and freeze for at least an hour.

6. Once frozen, pop candies out of molds. Keep frozen in a freezer safe container. Thaw for 5 minutes then enjoy!
