  • Why do I like it?

This was one of the first vegan sweets I tried making when I first discovered recipes designed without diary and refined sugar.  I made it so many times because they are quick and easy requiring very few ingredients.  They are very indulgent but the light, minty flavor takes away any heaviness you might find with a rich chocolate dessert.  They are best kept and eaten frozen which gives them a nice texture as well.

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

The recipe is actually for a peppermint patty which has two cookies, a mint filling and a chocolate coating.  I tried to make them but didn't have much luck with the mint filling.  So I just made a half recipe of the wafer part only.  Sometimes I make the chocolate coating and sometimes I just melt down good quality, vegan chocolate chips.  I also find it easier to dip half the cookie in the melted chocolate.  It stays together better and I prefer it with less coating.
