Healthy Peanut Butter Cups.

I may not spend a lot of time in the kitchen, but when I do I like to create healthy desserts that are made with few and natural ingredients. It is almost like a game for me to figure out how to do them as simple as possible and I like the precision involved with baking vs. cooking. Sorry bf, you still have to make our dinner! My favorite dessert of all time (and I am sure many people agree) is Reese’s Peanut Butter cups and I have been seeing healthier versions all over Pinterest, but every recipe I found had a number of steps and each involved multiple ingredients. This is too complicated for a novice like myself. I like to keep it simple so I don’t get overwhelmed and give up, eating the entire bag of chocolate on the kitchen floor. My recipe is a quick three step freezing process that involves a total of four ingredients and tastes AH-mazing! Read the details below and let me know what you think about my healthy peanut butter cups!

Ingredients:
Bag of dark chocolate chips or carob chips
Peanut Butter (1/2 a cup-ish)
Sea Salt
Coconut Oil

Directions:
Melt down the chocolate chips (9 oz) in a pot with a spoonful of coconut oil, stirring occasionally until melted.
Spoon melted chocolate into muffin tin/cup about 1/3 of the way in the cup. Freeze.
Take out of freezer and add spoonful of all peanut butter in layer on top of the chocolate layer. Freeze again.
Use spoon again to top each cup with a layer of chocolate, sprinkle sea salt on the top. Freeze again.
Enjoy!

You could do different variations on the layering depending on what you like, but this was my first time attempting these so I tried to stay true to a Reese’s. Have you made these before and do you have any tips? Share in the comments below!
