Successive in our vacation reward week are these no-bake peppermint chocolate mint cups! (check out the ginger molasses SOFTIES from earlier in the week if you missed them!) I enjoy a great oat-y no bake circumstance with great deals of chocolate, which’s precisely what this is. A little tip of peppermint extract offers us that smooth After Eight-ish feel that’s undoubtedly holiday-appropriate. You might certainly utilize vanilla though!

These little cups are seriously abundant. You might serve them as a standalone dessert with a good dollop of coconut cream. Given that I can manage my sugary foods (lol odd boast), they work as a treat for me, so there’s that. Likewise, the oats offer a good health radiance if required. Breakfast-appropriate if you’re having * among those days *;-RRB-

My preferred aspect of this reward, aside from the no-bake aspect, is that it comes together fast and has precisely 10 components. In some cases simpleness is crucial throughout these hectic last days of the year.

It’s a lot!

      Hey There Bronwyn,
      I have actually not made them in tiny muffin tins, however I believe it would be great. You would simply require something rather little to make the imprints for the filling. I believe these would freeze great if they remained in a sealed container!

    I’m going to be that frustrating individual and ask if you have rolled oats options? Would a mix of seeds work rather? Reply

    • Laura

      You might most likely simply utilize more nuts and coconut (an additional 1/2 cup of each), however I need to inform you that I have not attempted this myself so can’t ensure anything. Possibly include a tablespoon of ground flax for some additional binding power if needed? Let me understand how they end up if you attempt them without oats.

    What can u usage in location of pecans if adverse nuts? Reply

      I would utilize raw sunflower seeds rather! You can replace the exact same quantity, however you might need to run the food mill awhile longer to get them good and carefully sliced.

    If we do not have a food mill, would a mixer work, or a portable mixer (like the ones utilized for soups)? Reply

    • Laura

      Hey There Rachael,
      I believe that the mixer may be the very best alternative of the 2. I would grind the oats, pecans, coconut, and salt individually till fine and after that discard them into a bowl. Then, I would mix the dates and coconut oil till they’re good and puréed. Then, I ‘d include that mix to the ground up nuts, coconut etc. From there, you can stir it up till it sticks perfectly.

    My “dough” ended up truly damp– I returned and inspected and I followed the dish precisely. Any concept what failed? Reply

    • Laura

      Hey There Madison,
      Did you have truly fresh, extremely soft and sticky dates? Or did you need to soak them in water a bit to soften them up? If they were certainly extremely fresh dates, I question if you may have overpacked the cup when you were determining them? If you needed to soak the dates, it’s possible that you might not have actually drained them enough. Beyond these 2 choices, I truthfully can’t think about what failed here. The crust mix ought to be a bit sticky, however certainly not damp. If this occurs to you once again, you can constantly include another handful of oats and a spray of cocoa powder to dry the mix up a bit!

    I inadvertently got coconut cream rather of coconut milk for this dish. Could I utilize the coconut cream rather, perhaps if I dilute it with some water? Reply

    • Laura

      Hey There Rachael!
      Coconut cream would be great if you dilute it a bit, as you stated. Simply let it come totally to space temperature level initially so that it’s quickly scoop-able/spoonable and after that dilute it in a different measuring cup/bowl with some water.

I likewise put all the components into the food mill together and pulsed. Reply
