First, we need to turn the granulated sweetener into a powder. Use your blender or food processor, pulse granulated sweetener until it is fully powdered. Alternatively, you could buy confectioners Swerve.
Mix powdered sweetener with peppermint extract and unsalted butter. Mix until well-combined. Mix in heavy cream or coconut cream until the dough is no longer crumbly, and can be formed into balls without crumbling.
Form dough into 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch balls and gently push them down to form a disk shape.
Place disks on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Put in the freezer for 5-10 minutes, or until hardened.
While the disks freeze, melt a dark chocolate bar in the microwave in 20 second bursts. Stir fully between bursts. Once melted, do not continue to microwave, or the chocolate could burn. Mix in stevia to taste, if desired.
Remove disks from freezer. Place on a fork and dip and flip to fully coat in dark chocolate. Return to baking sheet. Repeat to coat all disks. Place into fridge until hardened. Transfer to an air-tight container and store in the fridge for a week. These can also be stored in the freezer.
