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.
