Instructions
Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x9 baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Mix together almond flour, cocoa powder, and xylitol. Add in melted butter and mix well. Press into bottom of prepared baking pan. Bake for 13-15 minutes, until edges have started to darken.
  3. Let cool completely before adding layers.
Mint Cream Cheese Whipped Cream
  1. Whisk heavy cream, xylitol, creme de menthe, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat softened cream cheese with an electric mixer until soft and creamy. Add in the whipped cream mixture, 1/3 at a time. Thoroughly combine whipped cream and cream cheese before adding more to prevent cream cheese lumps from forming.
  3. When crust has cooled completely, spread mint cream cheese whipped cream evenly over crust.
Mint Chocolate Pudding
  1. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter, chocolate, heavy cream, milk, and xylitol together. Heat slowly and stir frequently until chocolate and butter are fully melted (5-10) minutes.
  2. Sprinkle the xanthan gum slowly into the chocolate mixture while whisking. Continue to heat for 5 minutes over low heat, whisking constantly.
  3. Remove from heat and add creme de menthe and vanilla extract. Let stand for 15 minutes or until cooled, then add pudding in an even layer over the mint cream cheese whipped cream layer.
Mint Whipped Cream
  1. Whip heavy cream, xylitol, creme de menthe, and vanilla extract just until stiff peaks form. Be careful not to over whip. Add whipped cream in an even layer over the mint chocolate pudding layer.
Finishing Touches
  1. Optional: Add chocolate shavings or mini chocolate chips on top to garnish.
  2. Place Mint Chocolate Delight in refrigerator to set completely, 3-4 hours.
  3. Serve cold. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freeze.

Instructions
  1. If you only have 1 mixing bowl for an electric mixer, do step 6 first and then set aside for later.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat water and 1 cup xylitol over medium heat. Continue heating until the xylitol has reached between 240 and 250 degrees F. Be careful. Xylitol will be extremely hot!
  3. While the xylitol is heating, begin whipping egg whites in an electric mixer with a whisk attachment. When eggs are frothy, add the cream of tartar. When soft peaks form, add the remaining 1/4 cup of xylitol. Continue to whip until stiff peaks form. The goal is to have the xylitol reach 245 degrees F at the same time that the eggs have reached stiff peaks.
  4. With the electric mixer on low speed, gently add the xylitol in a thin stream into the eggs. Be careful not to touch the whisk or the sides of the bowl with the xylitol.
  5. Continue whisking on high speed until the frosting has cooled, about 10 minutes. The mixing bowl should be roughly room temperature or slightly warmer.
  6. In a separate mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and 1 cup of butter. Beat with an electric mixer with a paddle attachment until well blended.
  7. Return the egg and xylitol to the stand mixer with a paddle attachment and turn the mixer on low. Add the cream cheese and butter blend 1 tablespoon at a time. Once added, begin adding butter 1 tablespoon at a time until either the buttercream has smoothed out or the butter is gone. Continue to beat the buttercream until the frosting is smooth and not runny.
  8. Mix in the vanilla extract. If buttercream is too soft, refrigerate until it has stiffened. Re-whip before using.
  9. For best results, use immediately. Frosting may be stored in the refrigerator for later use for up to 5 days. Re-whip before using.
