Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

INGREDIENTS:

Bottom Layer:

  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 packets stevia

METHOD:

  1. Line a mini muffin tray with 10 paper liners.  Stir all ingredients together until smooth and divide between the 10 mini muffin wells (each should be about half full).  (Try not to dribble on the sides since it will give your candy a streaked look.)
  2. Put the tray in the freezer on a flat surface and freeze until solid (about 15 minutes, give or take a little while depending how cold your freezer is).

Top Layer:

  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 packet stevia
  • 10 walnut halves (optional)

METHOD:

  1. Stir all ingredients together (except walnut halves) until smooth and divide on top of the set chocolate mixture.  Transfer back to the freezer and freeze until partially solid (about 5 minutes), then lightly press 1 walnut half into the top of each candy (if using the walnut halves).  Return to the freezer and freeze until solid.
  2. Store the treats in the fridge in an air-tight container between layers of wax paper.
