As you may have seen in a previous post, I’ve recently fallen in love with a company called Rasa Koffee. Rasa makes amazing blends of adapotgenic herbs and mushrooms that provide a clean, healthy, calm and focused energy boost. You can make Rasa in a french press just as you would coffee, OR you can have some fun with it, just as I did here!

Tips for making Peppermint Cacao Freezer Candy:

  • To make this completely RAW, replace the 3 tbs of 100% chocolate chips with 1 1/2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder or 3 tbs of raw cacao nibs, omit or use the sweetener of your choice, AND make sure you use sun-dried golden raisins or replace the raisins with 2 raw dates or any raw dried fruit of your choice.

  • To make the Sugar-Free version, be certain to use an alternative sweetener such as this one (my favorite).

  • To make this Nut-Free, replace the almond with pumpkin or sunflower seeds for very similar results!

  • I really like the subtle flavor and texture that the golden raisins add, but in a pinch, regular raisins or any other small dried fruit will do. I like to get my golden raisins in bulk from Natural Grocers.

  • These last well in airtight containers in the freezer for up to two weeks. They will slowly soften at room temperature, but I find it is okay if they sit out for up to 25 minutes before they start getting a bit soft.

  • You can blend the ingredients until they are completely smooth and creamy or leave it all a bit chunky (my preference). Your call!
