Ingredients

BOTTOM CHOCOLATE LAYER:

  • 4 Tbsp cocoa butter melted
  • 2 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • 4 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • dash sea salt

TOP WHITE CHOCOLATE LAYER:

  • 2 Tbsp cocoa butter melted
  • 3 Tbsp coconut butter melted
  • 2 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • dash sea salt
  • 1 candy cane crushed into small pieces

Instructions

BOTTOM CHOCOLATE LAYER:

  • Gently melt the cocoa butter over low heat.
  • Measure out four tablespoons of melted cocoa butter and stir in the honey or maple syrup until combined.
  • Add the rest and whisk until everything is combined.
  • Pour into a small glass dish of some type (I use a 7 x 5 inch Pyrex baking dish) that is lined with parchment paper.
  • Set in the freezer to harden while you make the top layer.

TOP WHITE CHOCOLATE LAYER:

  • Again, gently melt the cocoa butter.
  • Measure out two tablespoons of melted cocoa butter and pour into a small bowl.
  • Gently melt the coconut butter in the same way.
  • Measure out three tablespoons of coconut butter and mix the two butters along with the remaining ingredients until smooth.
  • Pour the mix over the top of the hardened chocolate layer.
  • Top with crushed candy canes. To avoid the candy canes sinking to the bottom of the white chocolate layer, let it set a bit in the freezer first.
  • Once confection has solidified, break apart and enjoy!
