Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut Butter Cups
Chocolate Coating:
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup peanut butter or other all natural nut butter (like almond or cashew) OPT.
6 Tablespoons raw carob powder
2/3 cup Sucanat or raw sugar, powdered fine in blender (I prefer the raw sugar)
pinch of sea salt
½ teaspoon vanilla
Peanut Butter Filling:
1/4 cup Natural Peanut Butter
3 Tablespoons Honey

In a double boiler or on very low heat mix Chocolate coating ingredients Until nice and smooth.  If you want the peanut butter filling totally enclosed in the coating put a little coating in the bottom of muffin papers in a muffin tin.  Then freeze, it will only take a few minutes to set up.  While it is setting up mix the peanut butter and honey together.  Add to the muffin papers then add more of the chocolate coating on top to cover the filling!  As shown below in the picture.  Freeze again until set up then enjoy.  Be sure to keep cool (like in the fridge when storing) because they will start to melt at 76 degrees!

These are delectable! :) I used powdered sucanat in the peanut butter, I liked the bit of texture it added.

Bobbi: I like Adam's and you can get it at almost any grocery store. Also Costco has a good organic kind.

I made these today except I used raw ground up cacao nibs instead of the carob powder. They were so yummy! Everybody loved them. I just recently found your site and am loving all the good info. Thank you!
