(plain chocolate or peanut/almond butter cups)
1/2 c coconut oil
1/2 c cocoa powder
1/2 c natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
1/4c raw honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
(for easy measuring, when tripling the recipe use a 1lb jar of organic, natural peanut/almond butter)
To make plain chocolate cups just leave out nut butter.
Blend all ingredients together in a blender or food processor. The warmth of blending will liquify it to become smooth. Pour desired amounts into muffin liners (regular or mini). Chill to set them. Store in the freezer for long term, fridge for short term. They will liquify again if they become warm.
*can also be used at a “magic shell” type topping on cold desserts if warmed and poured over them.
