What would life be without those sweet little treats? If you ask me, you’ll hear something between boring and impossible!
So, here’s a clean recipe for peanut butter cups – for more guilt-free happiness.
For the chocolate covering:
1 cup coconut oil
1 1/2 cups raw cocoa powder
3 tbs honey or maple syrup
optional: a pinch of salt
For the covering firstly melt the coconut oil, then slowly add the honey, salt and cocoa powder. I love using a bain-marie made of steel, but a glass bowl will do the trick. Mix until you have a smooth, liquid chocolate paste.
Put about 2 teaspoons of the chocolate mix into your forms, put it into the freezer immediately and keep your chocolate mix warm and smooth. When the chocolate has hardened (after about 10 min.) place a dollop of the nut butter in the middle of each form, cover with the chocolate mix and let everything harden up in the fridge.
They will keep in the fridge for 4+ weeks (if you haven’t eaten all of them by that time!).
