Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil softened
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter softened

  • Place pan in the freezer for 10 minutes to let chocolate solidify.
  • Slightly melt the coconut oil and coconut butter until it’s a thick icing consistency. Add remaining ingredients and whisk together.
  • Take the pan out of the freezer and spread coconut mixture over the chocolate using a rubber spatula.

Notes

  • If you do not have a double boiler, you can create one by placing a small pot into a slightly larger pot that is filled with a small amount of water.
  • Use refined coconut oil if you don’t want a strong coconut flavor.
  • If you are concerned about artificial colors and flavors in candy canes, I suggest buying a brand that fits those needs! During the holidays you should be able to find them in health food stores.
