"These Are a Few of My Favorite Things": 3-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Honey Mint Patties

Three ingredients, that's it. Just unsweetened dark chocolate, honey, and peppermint oil.

I like a piece of chocolate candy now and then ("now" meaning today after lunch, "then" meaning tomorrow after lunch -- so not as rare as "now and then" sounds). But I also am mindful of ingredients that my body could reject and make me sick. With just three ingredients, I knew these would be okay for me.

My daughter-in-law brought the non-mint version of these patties when they came over one evening in 2020. I thought they were amazing, especially considering the chocolate is unsweetened. I wanted to try the mint patties, as I'm a big chocolate mint patty devotee. I mentioned to my daughters that I would greatly appreciate some of these as a gift. My daughters made sure I received a bag of these from Santa on Christmas.

The mint version did not disappoint. They are so rich and delicious, and yet are a good choice when wanting a sweet candy treat. The brand is Heavenly Organics. They are not easy to find in stores, but my daughters did find them on Amazon. They are kind of pricey. But hey, maybe that will make them feel even more special to me as I indulge. 

Anyway, I know others here struggle with food ingredient issues. I wanted to share that there is a brand of chocolate candy that contains very few ingredients, in case that is helpful.


  1. Those look delicious! I started making my own chocolate chips after trying (and failing) to find a healthier version to buy. I purchased chocolate chip molds off Amazon, then through trial and error used a combination of melted coconut oil, unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla and honey, maple syrup and coconut sugar to sweeten. The result has been a dark chocolate chip that me and my family really like. They're great to mix into a trail mix with nuts and raisins and hold up pretty well in cookies (although a bit melty). I also don't have any kind of sugar crash after eating them.

    1. Hi Trina,
      Your homemade chocolate chips sound amazing. What a fabulous idea! I really like that you can control the ingredients with those. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Wow, just read their story online! Sounds like an impressive company all around. Glad you found something tasty that you can enjoy.


    1. Hi Cat,
      Thank you. For a treat, these are really good. And I'm glad that the company is trying to do the right thing.

  3. It looks like your family listened to what you wanted for Christmas. What is the middle of the candy like? Your picture makes it look solid. When I was a kid, I liked to make mint patties. I used powdered sugar, water, mint oil, and melted chocolate. A few more ingredients than your gift, but not too many.

    1. Hi Live and Learn,
      The center is more solid, like when honey crystallizes. The photos on their website make the honey look more "drippy". Both the patties I had in 2020 and now this package the centers have been solidified honey, likely the aging from the time the patties were processed.
      Several years ago, my daughters and I embarked upon making some of our favorite commercial candies, like Mounds, Almond Joy, Snickers, but we never did mint patties, probably because they're my favorite but not really their favorite. Your homemade mint patties sound delicious.

    1. They've been a really delicious treat for me this week, Kris.

      I'm now processing Trina's comments on making her own chocolate chips and wondering if I could make a chocolate coating to make my own honey-mint patties dipped in dark chocolate. Or I could just ask for more honey-mint patties for my birthday in April.

    2. That's what I was thinking you could do! I've seen people make chocolate peanut butter cups (like Reese's) by using muffin tins with cupcake liners in them. I looked at your patties on Amazon and the honey they use looks very similar to the one I buy for our family off there, TJO Bees Raw Honey. It's more solid (and pricey) but I do buy the large jar in bulk so I get a better deal. If you used a more liquid honey maybe you could add some kind of rice or coconut flour to it to thicken it and then layer it with the chocolate.

    3. Hi Trina,
      That's interesting about the raw honey you buy being more solid than standard pasteurized honey. I may try to make peppermint patties later this winter. I have the coconut oil, cocoa powder, vanilla, and some honey that has solidified that I could use for the chocolate, and then the honey and peppermint oil for the filling. This may work!

    4. Always worth a try! I'm so glad I did it with the chocolate chips because I think they are going for around $9 a bag and I can make them for a fraction of a cost.... it adds up!
