    This was a dud. It would not set up wasn’t thick enough up on parchment paper. My husband doesn’t like the combination of orange and peppermint either.

      Hi Roxy, Sorry that your candy didn’t set up properly. I haven’t had that problem. Perhaps if you try again you can use only peppermint or orange (or other flavors), and he’ll enjoy.

    Love these candies. The recipe was shared some time ago on the Fasting with Food challenge. The version I use is with 1 TBS Tahini, 1 TBS coconut oil/cacao butter, 2 TBS cacao powder, 10 drops stevia and about the same with mint flavoring. Basically the same idea but a bit more cacao powder.
    It always sets up nicely.

    I use Tahini as it is less expensive than almond butter and cacao butter holds the hardness a wee bit longer. They really need to kept in the freezer. But such a nice treat with about 1 g carb and about 30-35 calories depending on how many candies are made. Plus they only take about 10 minutes to put together.
