Well well well… another chocolate recipe… whooooopsie. These are so yummy.. and I mean.. how could they not be? My two favourite things.. peanut butter and CHOCOLATE ❤ To top it all off, it is super simple to make 🙂 you’re welcome!
Now I do have to admit the addiction to chocolate is real, as is the addiction to peanut butter. I did have to reduce the amount of peanut butter I was consuming but I feel this is a good amount.. you can enjoy it and keep it on the tablespoon size amount.. unless you eat five.. then we have a problem.
Cash Creations: “Healthified” Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
1 Cup Dark Chocolate chips (I used Camino 70%)
1 TBSP Coconut Oil
1/2 cup of peanut butter (only peanuts, nothing else added, suggest organic)
1 Scoop of vanilla protein (I used biosteel vanilla whey)
1 Tbsp maple syrup (to taste)
Optional: Sprinkle of sea salt
So this is all you have to do…decide how many you want.. I have about 12 silicon cups I use for cupcakes and peanut butter cups, so I usually aim to melt enough chocolate for that.
- Melt chocolate in your double boiler, then add coconut oil to smooth it out. Once melted poor a bit into your silicon moulds. Try turning it on its side and rotating the mould so that your chocolate will sneak up the sides of the mould to make sure your peanut butter will sit inside of it.
- Pop it in the freezer to set.
- While it is setting – in your stand mixer, whip some peanut butter.
- Add in vanilla protein and whip again.
- Then add your maple syrup if you want to sweeten it up a bit!
- Sprinkle of sea salt if you’re being adventurous and mix.
- Pull out your moulds and place about 1-2 teaspoons of your peanut butter mixture inside and flatten.
- Poor more of your chocolate sauce over top to ensure that all of the peanut butter is covered.
- Place back in the freezer to set for about 30 minutes.
- Pop out of your mould and devour.
These are dangerously good.. don’t say I didn’t warn you!
