No Bake Peppermint Chocolate Bites

“Arman, when you move to America you need to try out the seasonal drinks at Starbucks for us.” 

Who knew that one (most likely a joke) request from my friends back home would actually become a reality? 

Starbucks hype never really hit Australia. I still remember back when I was in my early high school days and there was an announcement on the news that Starbucks would be opening multiple locations and coffee would be “taken to another level”.

Yes, it certainly went to another level.

A level of disappearance.

Now? There are only three (I think?) Starbucks stores in Melbourne. Every time I went past one of the stores (which were all located within the city center), it would be mostly filled with tourists or people holding up their hands saluting it.

Oh wait, sorry.

They were just trying to mooch off the free WIFI which unlike America, is SO DARN HARD TO FIND.

Long story short, Starbucks in Australia is nothing like it is in the Northern Hemisphere or even other parts of the world, like London. It would be a safe assumption that the seasonal drinks would be the same, however, that is not the case.

America get blessed with peppermint mocha, pumpkin spice and gingerbread and Australia? White hot chocolate, iced white hot chocolate, and skinny white hot chocolate.

Thanks, Australia. Just show off our creativity, why don’t you.

Chocolate Mint Peppermint No Bake Balls

I promise you all that I do not have some obsession with Starbucks or pimping up their recipes. I have, however, decided to try out ALL their festive drinks and incorporate them into some no-bake bite or recipe, similar to the one which started it all- The No Bake Pumpkin Spice Latte bites.

Just last week, I went to Starbucks and put on my dumb naive Australian act and requested their Peppermint mocha before it was released. Why? So I could create today’s recipe. The team at the local Starbucks were amazing and had everything on hand to make it for me so here we go- Healthy No Bake Paleo Vegan Peppermint Chocolate Bites

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine your flours, espresso powder, cocoa powder, salt and granulated sweetener and set aside.
  • In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, melt your nut butter with the sticky sweetener. Whisk in the peppermint extract and pour into the dry mixture. Mix very well until fully incorporated.
  • If batter is too thick (it generally is), add a tablespoon of milk of choice, until a thick batter is formed. If batter is too thin, add a dash more flour until a thick batter is formed. Using your hands, form into bite sized balls. Roll in additional cocoa powder.
  • Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes, or until firm.

Notes

* I used a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup. You can use pure maple syrup or agave nectar, if not keto.
No Bake Paleo Vegan Chocolate Peppermint Bites (Keto, Sugar Free) can keep at room temperature, for up to 5 days. They are best refrigerated and are freezer friendly.

  1. the peppermint mocha is actually my favorite season drink of all time, even before the PSL! I love making it myself though without the added sugar and preservatives. I will have to make these soon to honor my cravings for it 🙂

  2. I love the seasonal drinks! I think my fave is the gingerbread latte but that doesn’t come out for a few more months! All about chocolate and peppermint together too. One of my favorite ‘sweet’ combinations on the planet!

  3. Hey I have no issues with white hot chocolate…especially if it’s served by a kangaroo. Because isn’t that what happens in Australia? No? Well, I am still on board with seasonal drinks…and I’ll be ready for some peppermint mocha soon! Nothing screams winter comfort like peppermint + chocolate! Well done, my kangaroo friend, well done.

  4. These sound amazing! Peppermint Mochas were my gateway drug to regular coffee in college. I still love the flavor of it but usually only enjoy on a special occasion, like Christmas Eve due to the sugar high 😉 Your snack version looks much better!

  5. I do love seasonal drinks and love Pumpkin Hot Cocoa. It’s my favorite. I could pop these babies in my mouth all day long! I don’t like white chocolate so I would never survive an Australian Starbucks. Unless there’s a cute kangaroo hopping around serving it like David said 🙂

  6. Arman – I saw these on FB and had to do a double take! These look so darn good – wonder if I’d ruin them if I were to sub in beets for the peppermint extract? Wait – You don’t have to answer that! 🙂
    So – am curious – does the Starbucks in Australia at least have those “Secret menu” drinks?

  7. The peppermint mocha is the only seasonal Starbucks drink I bought in London! I still remember my first ever Starbucks. We didn’t have it in Perth, and I was in Sydney for less than 24 hours for a job interview. Naturally I had to hunt down Starbucks (and Krispy Kreme!). I remember being less than impressed and you are right – they are usually filled with tourists!

  8. The peppermint mocha is actually my favorite seasonal drink. These looks like a fun and healthier alternative.
    Btw, I love the ‘ put on the dumb Australian accent’ part. Not dumb, I’m sure!

  9. I was quite shocked that there were NO Starbucks in Perth! I honestly thought they were everywhere! The only reason I miss it, if I’m honest, is the free wifi! I love how good the coffee is here… now if they could just up their wifi game!
    I’d rather have one of these balls than the mocha anyway! 🙂

  10. I wouldn’t proclaim myself to be a fan of seasonal drinks, but I do love a peppermint mocha as a treat during the holidays. Speaking of peppermint, these bites have my heart. Bites with peppermint equal perfection in my book!

  11. I tried this recipe and it turned out really good! I have no idea how it compares to the drink, though. Even though I’ve always been a huge coffee fan I have never been to Starbucks! My aunt promised to take me this summer 😉

  12. Just found yer website and decided to try these out. They are so yum! I give them 5 out of 5 stars! I love the texture and the CHOCOLATE AND THE PEPPERRRRMIIIIIIIINT!! I’ll definitely be making em again!

  13. I just made these and the butterbeer bites for our campung trip this weekend. So good! For the peppermint mocha bites, I used 4 shots of espresso, because I have an espresso machine and there is no point in buying espresso powder. My mix seemed dry so the extra liquid actually helped and still needed some more milk! I also didnt have a homemade nutella nor did I want to buy any, so I just threw in a tablespoon of cocoa powder with some peanut butter and it worked really well. These are so good! Thanks for the recipes!
