INGREDIENTS:

Bottom Chocolate Layer:

  • 2 Tbsp melted Organic Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Organic Nut Butter (smooth, not chunky). (You can use Almond, Cashew or Peanut. We recommend Almond or Cashew Butter)
  • 1/4 cup Organic Cacao Powder (or unprocessed cocoa powder)
  • 2 Tsp Organic Raw Honey or Stevia
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp of Organic Vanilla Extract

Top Peanut Butter Layer

  • 2 Tbsp melted Organic Coconut Oil
  • 4 Tbsp smooth Organic Nut Butter. (Almond, Cashew or Peanut. We recommend Almond or Cashew).
  • 1 Tsp Organic Raw Honey or Stevia
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp of organic vanilla extract

*NOTE: Double or triple the batch depending on how many you would like to make. I personally quadrupled this time so I can have more in the freezer on stand-by 🙂

INSTRUCTIONS:

Melt coconut oil, and honey in a sauce pan.

Add the cocoa powder and sea salt and stir until all the ingredients are combined.

Use a spoon to pour chocolate mixture into muffin cups with a paper liner.

Put in freezer for 10 minutes.

In the meantime, heat the top layer mixture in the microwave and mix.

Remove the bottom chocolate layers from the freezer.

Pour the nut butter mixture over the chocolate layer.

Place them back in the freezer for about 30 minutes, or until they’re hard. After I let them set for 30 min in the freezer, I popped out the cups from the paper liners, and put them in a freezer bag & put them back in the freezer. THESE DELICIOUS RIGHT OUT OF THE FREEZER! Enjoy with a small glass of organic milk, coconut milk or almond milk!

*NOTE: Pour as much or as little of the mixtures to the cups depending on the thickness desired. These are very rich, so you don’t need a lot. Space the mixtures out some.
