I cannot stress enough how amazing these little treats really are! The recipe is so simple you’ll find yourself making them as soon as you’ve read how to. They’re a great dessert treat or guilt-free sweet snack for a diabetic or anyone looking for a low sugar option.
What you’ll need:
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup cocoa powder
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
3 Tablespoons honey or agave
2 Tablespoons organic peanut butter (you can use any nut butter or peanut butter of your choice)
What to do:
- Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan over a medium heat.
- Once everything is nicely combined, tip the mixture into any mould. I went with a cupcake tray to make them look like peanut butter cups but you can use any shape and size. The thinner you make them, the quicker they set.
- Cool in the fridge for an hour.
- Enjoy! :)
Yep. It’s that simple! The cups are really gooey and really dense so you’ll find you will only eat one at a time.
*Tips: If you’re not a fan of peanut butter cups you can swap that for anything really. I made some fruit and nut cups by removing the peanut butter and replacing it with raisins and crushed nuts.
The chocolate will start melting pretty quickly so keep them in a container in the fridge.
This has easily become my favourite chocolate recipe! Let me know if you give it a go! :)
