Healthy Homemade Peppermint Chocolate

So instead of making a ton of unhealthy baking I decided to make some healthy chocolate for my family and friends for Christmas treats.

Serves 6+ I doubled the recipe and used a large baking sheet to spread. Recipe as follows:

Ingredients:
1C coconut oil (coconut butter will work as well)
•1C cocoa powder
•1/2C agave or maple syrup
•1tsp pure vanilla extract
Optional: chopped nuts, coconut, chopped candy canes, other extracts (I used 1/8tsp mint extract and organic candy canes).

Instructions:
Melt coconut oil in double boiler over medium heat. (Do not use microwave – zaps nutrients)
•When oil is melted, remove from heat and add cocoa powder, agave,  vanilla and other flavor extracts. Whisk until all ingredients well combined. Make sure no water splashes in at this point-it will get mealy.
•Pour the chocolate into parchment lined dish or molds, add optional nuts/candy canes and place in the fridge to harden. Once hardened cut into bars.
Enjoy!
