Peanut Butter & Raspberry Cups

These are far from perfect…………… but we’ll work on that.

Although, who needs perfection when something is this good?!  🙂

This is our first go at making our own chocolate… FUN!

What you’ll need for the chocolate…

  • 1c of raw cacao powder
  • 6tbsp of raw coconut oil
  • 1tbsp of coconut nectar or agave

We melted the coconut oil in a stainless steel bowl over a pot of simmering water and then added in the cacao powder and the coconut nectar.  Give it a good mix with a whisk until everything is combined.

Put about a tablespoon of chocolate into the bottom of silicon muffin cups… we chose to use silicon cup because they seem to hold their shape better than paper when pouring the chocolate in… if you used a muffin pan, the paper would work just fine!  🙂  You should get six to eight of these little gems with this recipe.

Place them in the freezer for about fifteen minutes.  Just enough time for the next step.

Choose the filling of your choice… it could be peanut butter, almond butter, any seed butter or a combination of nut or seed butter with a mashed berry.  So many options!  Give the butter a quick stir so it’s nice and smooth.

Remove the chocolate base from the freezer and place about a teaspoon of filling right in the centre.  Smooth it out a bit leaving just enough of an edge so that the chocolate top connects to the chocolate bottom.  🙂

Pour another tablespoon of chocolate over the filling, smooth out the top and place them back in to the freezer for another fifteen minutes or so… and then they’re ready to share!

Easy, peasy!  🙂
