Ingredients

  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter no salt, oil, sugar added
  • 1/2 Tablespoon coconut oil slightly melted
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup or honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Tools:

  • Mini cupcake tin
  • Mini cupcake liners
  • Double boiler or two pots one slightly larger than the other

Instructions

  • Put chocolate chips in a double boiler or double pots over medium heat on stove top.* (see notes)
  • Using a rubber spatula, stir until chocolate chips are completely melted
  • Put liners in mini cupcake tin and pour 1 teaspoon melted chocolate in each liner. Tap sides of tin lightly to even out chocolate
  • Place in freezer to set
  • Put remaining ingredients in small mixing bowl and stir well. If peanut butter is stiff, microwave for 15 seconds. Peanut butter should be pourable but not too liquidy
  • Remove tins from freezer and add 2 teaspoons peanut butter mixture in each liner
  • Add 1 teaspoon of chocolate on top, covering the peanut butter
  • Tap sides of tin to even out chocolate and place in freezer to set (10-15 minutes)
  • Store in fridge or freezer

Notes

If you do not have a double boiler, you can use two pots. Fill a pot with 1 inch of water and put a slightly smaller pot in the larger pot. This is a method to prevent the chocolate from burning
