Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 6 macaroons
In a small mixing bowl mix together shredded coconut, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, and peppermint extract. Using a tablespoon, scoop out mixture and form into balls/macaroon shapes. Place on a parchment paper lined dish in the refrigerator and let harden for at least 30 minutes.
When the coconut is hardened, make the chocolate. Melt chocolate chips with 1 teaspoon coconut oil by using the double broiler method or in the microwave. I did this in 20 second increments, stirring after each time. Be careful not to burn.
Dip the macaroons in the melted chocolate, covering completely. Place back on the parchment paper and sprinkle with sea salt. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until chocolate hardens.
Keep in the refrigerator or a cool place. Enjoy!
