Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

We’ve been on a chocolate kick for the last few weeks. It all started when I bought a Costco-sized container of cocoa powder. Now every baked good I set out to make ends up having a chocolate component. For example, we’ve been munching our way through chocolate cupcakes, chocolate Mexican wedding cookies, and fudge.

But perhaps a standout recipe out of all the things I’ve made were these Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups.

Chocolate Peanut Butter CupsĀ (like Reese’s but healthier)

Bottom layer ingredients:

-2 TBS melted coconut oil

-4 TBS smooth peanut butter

Bottom layer directions:

Stir coconut oil and peanut butter until smooth. Set 10 mini muffin paper liners onto a tray or plate and pour 1 Tablespoon of the mixture into each liner. Place in freezer on flat surface. Freeze for at least 1 hour.

Top layer ingredients:

-2 TBS melted coconut oil

-4 TBS smooth peanut butter

-1/4 cup cocoa powder

-1 tsp. stevia (or 1 TBS sugar)

Top layer directions:

Stir ingredients together until smooth. Remove the bottom layer from freezer and pour 1 Tablespoon of the chocolate mixture into each liner on top of the peanut butter. Place back into freezer for at least 20 minutes and then enjoy.

If you don’t eat them all at once you can store the remaining cups in the freezer.
