A couple weeks ago I posted recipes of my "clean" peanut butter cups and Almond Joy cups. I was craving something sweet yesterday, so I decided to combine the best of both worlds. The outcome was Ah-mazing! Here's the recipe...

Ingredients:
2 cups dark chocolate chips. I used 85% Ghirardelli chips
2 cups unsweetened coconut
3/4 cup nut butter. I used natural peanut butter.
1 tbsp. honey
Coconut oil
Non stick spray. I used coconut oil spray.
Mini muffin pan. Mine holds 24 cups

Start with the best part THE CHOCOLATE

Melt 3/4 cup chocolate chips with a 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil in microwave. Spray a mini muffin pan with non stick spray. Use a spoon to fill the bottoms of a mini muffin pan with chocolate. Use just enough chocolate to coat the bottom. Place pan in freezer to let chocolate set. Make the middle.

While chocolate is setting. Mix coconut, peanut butter, honey, and 1 tbsp. coconut oil in food processor or high powered blender till mixed. About 6 minutes.

Pull chocolate from freezer. Spoon mix or use hands to fill cups and push it flat. your chocolate should be solid at this point so the mixture and chocolate won't mix. Place back in freezer for a few minutes.

Melt the remainder of the chocolate with 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil. Pull the pan out of the freezer and fill the remainder of the cup to the top with melted chocolate.

Place back in freezer to harden. At least 15 minutes. Remove from freezer. Use a sharp knife and pop the cups out of pan and place on a plate or container. Keep refrigerated, they will melt at room temperature due to the coconut oil.

Enjoy!
