Chocolate Layer

3/4 cup x cacao powder

4 drops x peppermint oil

1/4 cup x cacao butter

1/4 cup x coconut oil

1/2 tsp x salt

1/2 cup x maple syrup

1/2 tsp x vanilla extract

1/2 cup x buckwheat

Cheeze cake filling

1.5 cups x soaked cashews

12 drops x peppermint oil

1/2 bunch x mint leaves

3/4 cups x coconut oil

4 tbsp x xylitol

1 cup x coconut cream

1 tsp x vanilla extract


1. In a pot on low heat, melt the cacao butter then whisk in all of the remaining ingredients (except the buckwheat) until no lumps remain and it starts to thicken slightly.

2. Separate the chocolate into two bowls, stirring the buckwheat into one of them.

3. For the cheesecake filling, blend everything in a high speed blender until really smooth, then pour into moulds (I brushed coconut oil on them first) and top with the buckwheat chocolate mix as the base.

4. Allow a few hours for them to set in the freezer then pop them out of the moulds and drizzle over the remaining chocolate.
