Chocolate Thin Mints

Chocolate Thin Mints

Can you tell I am on a chocolate kick? After reading lucysfriendlyfoods blog on “Chocolate Mint Thins” this week (@Lucylox is a Cordon Bleu trained chef who prolifically posts friendly recipes for us allergic folk), I felt brave and empowered to make something new. I was craving chocolate (this is ALL the time, by the way), the recipe appeared to be super-simple, and I just so happened to have all the ingredients on hand.

I’ve slightly altered Lucy’s recipe to include the American unit conversions and other new details. Thank you, Lucy!

Chocolate Thin Mints

(dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, sesame-free, vegetarian and vegan)

makes 15

  • 1/2 cup of dark chocolate, I used Enjoy Life Mini Chips (soy, milk, and nut free)
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract

– Melt the chocolate in a microwave and stir well until smooth.

– Stir in the peppermint extract to taste.

– Drop spoonfuls on a baking sheet lined with foil. I swirl them flat with a spoon.

– Leave to set.

  2. I saw those chocolate chips in Ralphs the other day and I thought of you. It’s so great that the major grocery chains are stepping up to provide products for people with allergies. When I was doing the gluten-free thing I found that Ralphs also had a lot of those types of products. Whole Foods is too expensive. Amazon is good, too.

    • That’s great news! I haven’t shopped in Ralphs in a while. Good to know I can get the “goods” there! Enjoy Life has more milk and soy-free desserts that I’d like to check out but I haven’t found them in the stores. I’ll probably buy them on Amazon.
