Raw Peanut Butter Cups

I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter! I am so glad I found this recipe since I can no longer have Reese’s peanut butter cups. I think these taste better than any peanut butter cup you can buy at the store. You can make these in less than half an hour and they look really impressiveJ They are easy to make and are delicious.

*Makes 8 servings
Ingredients:
1/2 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. raw cacao powder
1/4 c. raw nut butter (peanut butter, almond butter, etc.)
1 tbsp. agave
Directions:
1.       If your coconut oil isn’t already melted, put it in a bowl and place that bowl inside another bowl filled     with warm water.
2.       Add the cacao and agave.
3.       You can use muffin tin liners if you want. I just oil the muffin tin and put about 1 tbsp of chocolate in       the bottom of each.
4.       Place in the freezer to set for about 10 minutes or until hard.
5.       Put about 1 tbsp of nut butter in the bottom of each cup. Don’t let the nut butter touch the sides of         the cup, or the finished product will look messy.
6.       Divide the rest of the chocolate equally between the tops of the cups, covering the nut butter                   completely.
7.       Place back in the freezer for another 10 minutes.
8.       I pop mine out using a spoon. If using liners, peel the liners off your cups.
9.       Enjoy! Store the extras in the fridge.
