Ingredients
  • 1 cup heavy cream, chilled
  • 1 cup cream cheese, softened (or Kite Hill brand if dairy free)
  • ¼ cup Swerve confectioners, or equivalent (to desired sweetness)
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • Chocolate Coating:
  • ¾ cup whipping cream (or coconut cream: top part of coconut milk)
  • ⅓ cup Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener or equivalent
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 vanilla bean scraped clean or ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Garnish with Mint Leaves
Instructions
  1. Place the heavy cream in a chilled bowl and beat until stiff peaks form. Add in the softened cream cheese, natural sweetener and vanilla; combine until smooth.
  2. Place the mixture into a bendable chocolate mold(I used this muffin pan and placed it on a cookie sheet for stability). Place in freezer until frozen.
  3. To make chocolate coating, place the cream, chopped chocolate and natural sweetener in a double boiler or in a heat safe bowl over simmering water. Heat on low heat while stirring just until chocolate melts. Remove from heat. Add in the vanilla bean seeds.
  4. Dip frozen ice cream bites into chocolate, return to wax paper, and place in freezer to set.
