Healthier Peanut Butter Cups

Healthier Peanut Butter Cups

3/4 cup of natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1/3 cup of chopped toasted almonds
4 ounces of unsweetened chocolate
2-4 tablespoons honey, depending on your taste preference

In a small bowl combine the peanut butter, coconut oil, vanilla, first two tablespoons honey, and nuts. Mix until well combined.  Drop by the heaping teaspoon into mini cupcake pans. Place in freezer.
Chop chocolate into small pieces and place in the top of a double broiler (or, like I do, in a heat proof bowl that fits on top of a pot you have). Mix in the honey. Bring about two inches of water to a boil in the pot and place the bowl on top. Watch the chocolate carefully so that it doesn’t burn, stirring gently while the chocolate melts. When there are just a few chunks left in the chocolate, take off of the heat and allow it to melt completely.  Drop by the teaspoon over the peanut butter mixture and place back into the freezer. Freeze for 20 minutes. Take out, and using a butter knife pop them out. Keep in the freezer or refrigerator and enjoy!
