Dark Chocolate Layer:
¾ cup Navitas Organics Cacao Butter Wafers
½ cup Navitas Organics Cacao Powder

½ cup milk powder
4 Tbsp. powdered sugar
¼ tsp. peppermint extract
Pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS

In a medium saucepan, melt cacao butter wafers on low heat until completely melted. Remove from heat, then whisk in cacao powder, salt, vanilla extract, and maple syrup until smooth.

Pour chocolate mixture over a parchment paper-lined sheet pan and spread out evenly.

In another saucepan, melt cacao butter wafers and whisk in milk powder, powdered sugar, peppermint extract, and salt. Mix until smooth.
