What a great way to use up all those lingering candy canes - would be a lovely treat for New Years Eve! I found an organic, corn syrup-free variety at Whole Foods and they were perfect for this! The recipe results in a sweet, decadent, salty and crunchy dessert that will delight children and adults alike.

It's free of gluten and soy, and it can be relatively low in sugar if you use a ultra dark chocolate, a raw chocolate and/or one sweetened with stevia or xylitol. It can also be low in salt if you use salt-free tortilla chips and even low in oil and nut-free if you leave out the coconut oil.

Serves Many!

Ingredients

  • candy canes (organic & corn syrup-free if you can find them) - 4
  • chocolate chips/pieces (I used fair-trade and organic chips) - 1 cup
  • coconut oil - 1 tbsp
  • tortilla chips - 1 bag

Instructions

  1. Heat water to a low boil in a double boiler on the stove. If you don't have a double boiler, begin by brining water to a boil in a medium or large pot.
  2. Place candy canes in a bag (tip: reuse a small plastic bag) and crush them into fine pieces using a kitchen hammer or measuring cup.
  3. When water is boiling, reduce heat to low and add the chocolate into the top of the double boiler (or into a small pot placed inside the medium/large pot).
  4. Stir with a spatula until chocolate is completely melted, then remove from the heat.
  5. Mix in the coconut oil to thin out the chocolate.
  6. Add half of the crushed candy canes into the chocolate and combine well.
  7. Prep a baking pan with a silicone mat (commonly called a Silpat) or a piece of parchment paper.
  8. Dip tortilla chips into the mixture, covering half of each of chip.
  9. Place the dipped chips chocolate side up on the lined baking pan.
  10. When all of the chips have been dipped and placed, sprinkle the remaining crushed candy canes on top.
  11. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to allow chocolate to harden.
  12. Remove them from the freezer and serve immediately on a plate (chocolate will slowly start to melt and get messy!)
