Easy Homemade Peanut Butter Cups
You all know I love me some chocolate. But I really try to stay off the sugar.
These homemade peanut butter cups are one of my favorite healthy treats!
And what I love about them is that they are so easy to make – no melting down the chocolate and trying to coat the peanut butter mixture like so many other recipes for homemade peanut butter cups. Nope. Just mix it all up and you're done. So I'll stop talking and just give you the recipe:
In a small saucepan, melt together
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup coconut oil (Tropical Traditions is my favorite, but sometimes I get the inexpensive stuff from Vitacost.)
1/4 cup raw honey (Tropical Traditions is my favorite, but local honey is awesome too!)
1/4 cup raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder) (I get raw cacao very inexpensively through Vitacost. Get a $10 off $30 coupon when you sign up through my referral link. Or get it here if you already have an account.)
Note: I used the natural peanut butter from Aldi, which has some molasses added to it. If you're using unsweetened peanut butter, you may want to add a little more honey.
Spoon into mini muffin liners and freeze until hardened. Keep frozen or refrigerated until served.
