Peppermint just speaks of Christmas to me. It must be because candy canes are everywhere this time of year but my whole household also loves all things peppermint. In particular, my 10-year-old daughter loves peppermint and especially York Peppermint Patties. I wanted to make a sugar-free healthy version of her favorite candy to surprise her for Christmas.

How to make Keto Peppermint Patties

It is very easy to make your own sugar-free peppermint patties at home. You simply mix together cream cheese, powdered sweetener, peppermint extract, and a dash of heavy cream. Form into patties and cover with chocolate - done!

Ingredients in Peppermint Patties

Cream Cheese - Cream cheese is essential for the creamy filling in this recipe!

Powdered Sweetener- Most of the time I usemy own blend of xylitol, erythritol, and steviabut there are some recipes that work better using a store-bought powdered sweetener. Those are ground finer than you can normally get in your home kitchen.

Peppermint Extract- Make sure to choose one that says 'peppermint' and not just 'mint' or your peppermint patties may taste like spearmint.

Heavy Cream - You only need a teaspoon to help bind the filling together so if you want you can sub in another liquid.

Sugar-Free Chocolate - Any sugar-free chocolate will work!

Coconut Oil- I use refined coconut oil in recipes that I don't want a coconut flavor like these peppermint patties.

What kind of chocolate should I use?

I tend to useLily's Chocolate Chipsthe most because they have a nice flavor and melt well. But now you can find Bake Believe sugar-free chocolate chips (including white chocolate chips!) at many Wal-Mart stores. ChocZero also just came out with their own chocolate chips. I love that there are more and more options for good low carb chocolate finding their way onto the market.

Can I make these other flavors?

Absolutely! The peppermint flavor comes entirely from the extract so feel free to swap that out for vanilla, orange, or any other flavor you enjoy! You can also roll these into balls for more of a truffle shape.

How to store Keto Peppermint Patties

I store these in the fridge and when refrigerated they can last for weeks. I doubt they will - they taste too good for that. But if you find some hidden in the back of your fridge even months after making them I'm pretty sure they will be fine. You can also freeze these peppermint patties but just know that the chocolate may discolor from the temperature change. If that happens they are still fine to eat, just a little less pretty.

Ingredients

Peppermint Filling:

Chocolate Coating:

Instructions

  • Cream the cream cheese with an electric mixer. Add the heavy cream and peppermint extract. Add the powdered sweetener slowly, mixing well after each addition.

  • When it is thoroughly mixed in form 24 balls and press down into one-inch circles on a piece of parchment paper. Freeze for 15 minutes.

  • Melt the chocolate (and coconut oil, if using) in the microwave in 30-second increments, mixing well after each. When the chocolate is 80% melted stop heating it and stir until it is completely melted.

  • Use a fork to dip each peppermint patty into the chocolate. Place on a new sheet of wax paper. Repeat. Chill until the chocolate sets. Store in the refrigerator.

Notes

Notes on Sweeteners:

I use my ownblend of xylitol, erythritol, and steviain my recipes. This is twice as sweet as sugar. It is comparable toTrim Healthy Mama Gentle SweetandTruvia.

To sub inSwerve or Lakanto Monk Fruit use 1.5 times the amount of sweetener called for.

To sub inPyureorTrim Healthy Mama Super Sweetuse half the amount of sweetener called for.

Substitutions will work in most recipes. They may not work in candies, such as caramel.

    These treats are simply delicious! Easy to make and tastes just like Yorks. Will be making again. I used Choc Zero chocolate chips and I did use Coconut oil.Homemade Peppermint Patties Recipe - Keto, Low Carb, Sugar-Free, THM (20)

    Loved this recipe! The cream cheese isn’t even evident, and makes a perfect base for the powdered sweetener. I used an erythritol/ stevia blend but had to powder it myself
    so it came out a bit granular tasting but the overall flavour was amazing! I needed twice the cream and added twice the peppermint extract because it was a cheap brand. Also for perfect consistency of the chocolate dip, I added cacao butter and used only 6 oz of unsweetened chocolate. Pressed into moulds and got a smooth top and more structure for dipping. Highly recommend this one.Homemade Peppermint Patties Recipe - Keto, Low Carb, Sugar-Free, THM (21)

    Absolutely love this recipe! I have made it several times and although the first try was a little bit too dry and crumbly, I ended up adding just a touch more heavy cream to get a ball that is moist enough to roll and press down without dry edges. My peppermint is Young Living Peppermint Vitality and one drop is enough. My powdered sugar of choice is Swerve. Lakanto tends to get very clumpy.

    I used unsalted butter for the chocolate since I am sensitive to coconut oil. I combined Trader Joes 73% organic dark chocolate with their chocolate chips for the dipping which I make sure the patties are generously bathed in. It might not be as low carb or as sugar-free but chocoholics can only go so far!Homemade Peppermint Patties Recipe - Keto, Low Carb, Sugar-Free, THM (22)

    I doubled the recipe but used half the sweetener since I was using your sweetener recipe and nearly had enough for 20..🤔 they were smaller than quarter size and about 1/3 " thick.
    Thoughts?

      Since the sweetener is the bulk of the filling it makes sense you got less than 24 patties.

    Do you soften the cream cheese ? Also I have young living peppermint oil could I use that instead of peppermint extract?

    Reply

    • Taryn says

      The cream cheese should be room temperature. If it's cold it will just take much longer to mix in the powdered sweetener. I'm not sure about that oil and if it is food safe. As long as it is I'm sure you can sub it for the extract.

        Angie J.....had the same question about the oil.....did you try it? How did it work out?

  7. Joy says

    I doubled your recipe but kept sweetener to 1 cup. I can only make 20 balls. It was a struggle to even make 24.Homemade Peppermint Patties Recipe - Keto, Low Carb, Sugar-Free, THM (23)

      You must have made them bigger than I did. Mine are about an inch in diameter.

    Can I use 1 cup of Powdered Swerve?

      Yes, that is what I used.

    Oh My Gosh! I spent a couple of weeks hiding a bag of mini York Peppermint Patties in my computer room! I would have two or three a day! So very bad am I!

    I saw this recipe and I just wanted to hug you! (((HUGS!)))

    I made a double batch and it is so good! I used Kroger brand peppermint extract but I'm going to order some from Olive Nation and make more!

    I saved some without being dipped in chocolate and I'm going to add my sugar free peanut butter to it! Maybe my cashew and almond butter too! It's just so tasty! Maybe I will put it in my cheesecake smoothie tomorrow! I can't stop thinking of ways to eat it! It's so good! Thank-you so much!Homemade Peppermint Patties Recipe - Keto, Low Carb, Sugar-Free, THM (24)

    your recipe calls for 1 C powdered erythritol...you would sub the same amount of gentle sweet? I'm guessing for some reason the powdered erythritol doesn't swap out like regular erythritol/sugar measurements because we'd use 1/2 the amount of gentle sweet then....

    Reply

    • Taryn says

      No, sorry. You really need the bulk of a powdered sweetener for this. I use my version of gentle sweet in almost all my recipes unless they need more bulk.

  11. Sarah says

    Just 1 oz of cream cheese? That doesn’t seem like enough to form 24 balls. Please, confirm.

    Reply

    • Taryn says

      Yes. You are mixing 1 cup of powdered sweetener in it so it is enough.

    • Casie says

      I agree. I did 1 cup of Splenda and looked up 1 oz is 2 tbls. I only got 5 balls to flatten. I will have to multiply times 5 to get 24 balls
