In a small bowl set inside a small saucepan filled with water (for the double boiler method) or in a microwaveable bowl, melt the allergy friendly chocolate chips. If melting in the microwave, microwave for about 30-45 seconds at a time, stirring between eat heating, until melted.
Pour a little bit of chocolate into the bottom of each well of a silicone mini muffin pan, OR a mini muffin pan lined with mini liners. Pour about 1 teaspoon into the bottom of each well and chill in the fridge or freezer until set (about 15 minutes).
While the bottom layer of chocolate is setting, mix up your filling. In a medium bowl, beat together the coconut oil, powdered sugar, and peppermint extract (or peppermint oil).
Once the bottom layer of chocolate is set, place a nickel sized dollop of peppermint filling onto the set chocolate layer, flattening it a bit. Do this for each well of the mini muffin pan.
Pour the remaining chocolate on top of the peppermint filling, covering completely. Put back in the fridge or freezer to chill and set.
Once the chocolate has set, pop the peppermint patties out of the mini muffin pan and store in the fridge in an airtight container.
