Ingredients

Scale

Filling

Coating

  • 3.5 oz dark chocolate
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint flavoring (optional)
  • flaked sea salt (optional)

Instructions

Make the Filling

  1. Melt the cacao butter: place the cacao butter in a small sauce pan and melt on the stove top, over low heat.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the melted cacao butter, almond butter, maple syrup, peppermint flavoring and vanilla extract.
  3. Using a spatula, mix in the collagen peptides until the mixture starts to thicken. Fold the chopped chocolate into the dough.
  4. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto a small, parchment-lined baking sheet or large plate. Freeze the bites for 10-15 minutes to harden.

Make the Chocolate Coating

  1. Combine the dark chocolate, coconut oil and peppermint flavoring in a small sauce pan. Place the pan on the stove top and melt over low heat, stirring every so often until the chocolate is fully melted.
  2. Grab the bites from the freezer and dip them in the dark chocolate.  Place them on a sheet of parchment paper to dry.
  3. Before the chocolate has fully set, add a pinch of sea salt.
