For the filling of these Dark Chocolate Peppermint Patty Fat Bombs, I use a combination of peppermint extract, coconut oil, shredded coconut, golden monk fruit sweetener, and heavy cream. Then, for the chocolate coating, all that is required is simply melting a chocolate bar.

The outcome? A flavor reminiscent of York peppermint patties, but better because these treats don’t contain a mountain-load of sugar and carbs!

Easy monk fruit-sweetened keto fat bombs recipe

TheseDark Chocolate Peppermint Patty Fat Bombs are sweetened with natural, net-carb-free monk fruit sweetener. I use Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener in virtually all of my ketogenic dessert and fat bomb recipes as it tastes just like traditional sugar and doesn’t kick me out of ketosis.

If you’ve never tried monk fruit sweetener, I highly recommend it! You can usecode “REALBALANCED” for 20% off your Lakanto order!

Peppermint Patty Fat Bomb FAQs

To make this recipe as easy as possible for you to make, check out these helpful answers to commonly-asked questions!

What do I need to make keto peppermint patty fat bombs?

Can I make these fat bombs dairy-free or coconut-free?

This recipe requires both dairy and coconut to be successful. I do have many dairy-free recipes and coconut-free recipes for you though!

Can I omit the peppermint extract from this recipe?

Yes! If you don’t want peppermint-flavored fat bombs, you can follow the recipe and simply altogether exclude the peppermint extract. Alternatively, you can sub in 1 tsp of vanilla extract for the peppermint extract or 1-2 tsp of your favorite extract flavoring!

Do I need a silicone mold to make these fat bombs?

Not necessarily, but you will be happy you have one! In this recipe, I use this silicone mold.

If you don’t have one, you could try placing the filling directly on a parchment paper-lined plate or baking sheet and then following the remaining instructions as written. But, these peppermint patties will work much better if you use a silicone mold.

How to make edgeless and rimless peppermint patties?

If you want peppermint patties that do not have hardened chocolate around the bottom (due to the melted chocolate hardening after being coated in chocolate and set atop a baking sheet), you can follow these steps:

  • Simply, chop a hard vegetable or fruit in half (like a large turnip, apple, or beet) and place it flat side down on a baking sheet.
  • When you’ve removed the fat bombs from their silicone mold cavities, insert a toothpick into the bottom of each (make sure it doesn’t go all the way through).
  • Dip into the dark chocolate (spooning chocolate over the sides) and carefully shake off any excess chocolate.
  • Insert the chocolate-coated fat bomb into the halved vegetable or fruit and allow to cool.

Note: If you aren’t concerned about the chocolate yielding a rim around the fat bombs, you can just dip the fat bombs into the melted chocolate and place directly on a parchment paper-lined plate or baking sheet.

How many net carbs are in fat bomb peppermint patties?

Each fat bomb contains 1.7 grams of net carbs. This recipe yields 10 servings in total. One serving is one Dark Chocolate Peppermint Patty Fat Bomb.

How to store fat bombs?

  • Refrigerator Storage: Store your fat bombs in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 5-7 days.
  • Freezer Storage: These fat bombs can also be stored in the freezer for up to 2 months. Before eating, allow the fat bombs to thaw slightly.

How many fat bombs can I eat per day?

This will be dependent on your personal goals. I personally eat 1-2 fat bombs per day and always remain in ketosis when doing so.

Can you eat more than 1-2 fat bombs per day? Sure! But, just be aware that you’ll need to account for the carb content so you don’t exceed the amount you want to be eating daily. If you need to learn more about how to calculate how many carbs you should be eating per day, read more about tracking your macros on a ketogenic diet!

Step-by-step: How to make these keto peppermint patties

In a high-speed blender or using an electric mixer on the highest speed, mix together all filling ingredients.

Pulse or mix until mixture turns into a paste.

Keto Peppermint Patty Recipe: Easy Low Carb Dark Chocolate Fat Bombs (5)

Spoon mixture into silicone mold cavities before transferring silicone mold to freezer to freeze filling until hardened, about 1-2 hours, depending on the temperature of your freezer.

To a small glass or stainless steel bowl, add dark chocolate. In a large pot over medium heat, using double boiler method (see note below), melt chocolate in bowl, stirring occasionally. Remove pot from stovetop and allow the melted chocolate to cool slightly before moving on to the next step, but before it starts to set.

Double Boiler Method Note: Instead of putting the chocolate bar directly in a pot to melt, we want to simmer water in a pot and set a bowl atop the simmering water. This is to ensure the chocolate does not burn and melts evenly. To successfully melt chocolate using the double boiler method, to a large pot, add just enough water to fill the bottom of the pan, but not too much that the water will touch the bottom of the bowl you plan to melt the chocolate in. Over medium heat with the bowl of chocolate atop the water, simmer the water, which will lead to the chocolate melting.

Remove the fat bombs from the individual silicone mold cavities. Insert a toothpick into each one of the fat bomb fillings and dip into the melted chocolate.

Place each into the halved fruit or vegetable (see note below) or directly on to parchment paper-lined plate or baking sheet before transferring to the refrigerator for 1 hour to set.

Halved Fruit or Vegetable Note: To easily allow the excess melted chocolate to fall off the fat bombs and create a rimless patty, you can cut a crunchy vegetable or fruit (like a turnip, apple, or beet) in half and place on a plate or baking sheet flat side down. Alternatively, you can place on a parchment paper-lined plate or baking sheet, but the excess melted chocolate will yield a rim.

    I really liked the fact that this was so easy to make and tasty! I did add more sweetener because at first all I could taste was unsweetened mint! Next time I’ll cut back on the mint just a tad and add more sweetener. Great recipe!

    I’m thinking that coconut butter instead of coconut oil and shredded coconut could work.

      I’m not sure, but this could potentially work! If you try it, let me know how it goes! 🙂

    While I don’t mind coconut oil there is just something about shredded coconut I cannot stand…3 tbsp for this recipe might be significant if I left it out. What might be a good substitution or do you think it will be ok if just omitted? Otherwise this sounds easy & delicious. Thank you!

      Unfortunately, I don’t think there is a viable alternative for the shredded coconut. The peppermint extract overpowers the flavor of the coconut, so you will likely not taste it at all.

    Can this be made dairy free by using coconut cream instead of heavy cream?

      I think that could work, but I haven’t tried it, so I can’t say for absolute sure! If you try it, let me know how it goes!

    Really good but instead of the chocolate mixture I just melted 1 cup Lilly’s chocolate chips and 1/4 cup coconut oil. Less fussy and tastes awesome! Will be making these again, thanks for the recipe.
