Ingredients

  • 1 oz dark chocolate, 70% cocoa, broken into small pieces*
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 20 large fresh mint leaves

Instructions

  • Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a small bowl in the microwave, in 30-second intervals, stirring after each microwave session.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush the mint leaves with the melted chocolate on both sides.
  • Place the chocolate mint leaves on wax paper and allow to set at room temperature, about 1 hour.

Notes

*Lindt 70% might be a bit too sugary for someone who does strict keto. Better options would be either Lindt 90% (perhaps with a teaspoon of a low carb sweetener added to the melted chocolate or the equivalent in stevia), or Lilly sugar-free chocolate chips.
Although in the amounts used here, the difference in carbs isn't earth-shattering. Around 3g carbs per serving for Lindt 70%, and around 2g carbs per serving for Lindt 90% or for Lilly.
