Peanut butter was on sale, so this recipe is because of that! I like to keep the price down! OH and I used a coupon and got myself one of those mini cupcake pans finally, this stuff is turning out really good so I will get some use out of it after all!
Today’s recipe review from Pinterest comes from Life Made Whole, and you can find the recipe here: http://lifemadewhole.com/2012/03/08/chocolate-and-peanut-butter-goodness/
For the PB mixture: 3/4 C all natural PB (hence waiting for a sale), 1/4 C coconut oil, and 2 tbsp honey
For the chocolate on top: 2 tbsp of coconut oil, butter, cocoa and honey
It’s pretty warm here right now so I didn’t warm the coconut oil and the peanut butter like in the article, mine mixed together smoothly just in a bowl, it’s hitting 40C out there right now with the humidity and we haven’t turned the air on! I mixed all the ingredients for the bottom peanut butter layer and put about a teaspoon of that mixture into the little mini cupcake pan holes. Then it went to the freezer while I mixed up the chocolate portion.
I did melt the coconut oil and butter together for the chocolate part, I used the microwave and put it in for 15 seconds until it was just barely all melted. Then I stirred in the cocoa and honey until it was all smooth. I did all this mixing in a measuring cup so it would be easy to pour on top of the frozen peanut butter.
I pulled the pan out of the freezer and poured just enough chocolate mix on the top to cover the peanut butter, I ended up running out of chocolate and had to go back and make another half portion to finish covering the peanut butter spots. Then back into the freezer they went!
I left them there for about an hour or so and then put them in to a container with a lid and then back into the freezer they will stay!
Definitely a ten on the taste scale for this one! The recipe worked out exactly like the original blog said it would! A must try for sure!
