Ingredients

  • 1 cup soaked cashews soak 1 hour or overnight
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips I recommend Enjoy Life brand
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk/coconut cream
  • 3/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbs maple syrup Tip: Make sure this is pure maple syrup and not pancake syrup

Instructions

  • Drain and rinse the soaked cashews.
  • Put chocolate chips and coconut milk/cream into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave 30 seconds to a minute until the chocolate chips are fully melted. Stir together so that it's a smooth, cohesive consistency.
  • Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend a couple minutes until completely smooth. Refrigerate at least an hour before serving. Enjoy! Note: The dip may be a bit thin when it comes out of the blender, but the refrigeration should firm it right up : )

Notes

  • I highly recommend Enjoy Life brand allergy free dark chocolate chips. They are completely dairy free and taste delicious!
  • I don't like super sweet desserts, but if you want this a little sweeter, add extra maple syrup 1 tsp at a time.
