Ingredients

  • 2 TB peanut butter or any nut butter
  • 2 TB maple syrup raw honey or powdered sugar
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate 3/4 – 1 cup

Instructions

  • Have a mini cupcake dessert pan ready to fill.
  • In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter and maple syrup.
  • Stir until well blended and set aside.
  • Melt the coconut oil and dark chocolate (in the microwave, using a double boiler or in a pot on the stove).
  • Stir the oil and chocolate occasionally until it’s melted.
  • Fill the bottom of each mini cup with 1 tsp of the melted chocolate mix.
  • Place the pan in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the freezer.
  • Next, add about 1/2 tsp of the peanut butter mix on top of the dark chocolate.
  • Now top it with the remaining dark chocolate.
  • Sprinkle sea salt lightly on top of the cups.
  • Freeze until firm, about 20-30 minutes.
  • Remove from the freezer. You can leave them at room temp or keep them in the fridge.
  • Enjoy your little treats!

Notes

The options are really endless with these treats. Depending upon how you like it, you can use more or less chocolate and peanut butter mix. I prefer more filling, so I use less chocolate and more filling mix.
You can store them at room temperature for a 1 week or in the fridge for about to 2 months.
