Chocolate Butter Cups

ChocoButtercups2

I love to cook and create recipes, in fact my whole family does.

I am so inspired by my Mom and both of my sisters. I am the youngest, and have always looked up to them in the kitchen and in life. So, when I was on the phone with my sister, Kim, the other day and she told me about a chocolate butter cup she whipped up, I knew I had to try it out myself. The result was so good, I had to share it with you!

This is a variation her recipe and I invite you to play around with it as well.

Chocolate Butter Cups

You Will Need

1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil

1/2 Cup of Coconut Butter

1/2 cup of Sunbutter or Natural Peanut Butter

2 Heaping Tablespoons of Raw Cacao Powder (substitute- baking cocoa)

2-3 Heaping Tablespoons of Local Honey (substitute- Agave syrup or Maple Syrup)

1 dash of Sea Salt

1 Tablespoon of Flax Meal (optional)

1 Tablespoon of Chia Seeds (optional)

How to Make

1. Place all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Warm in Microwave until it’s all melted together… about 1 minute. Mix well, sweeten to taste.

2. Using mini cupcake liners and pan, fill each liner 3/4 full with the mixture.

3. Freeze or refrigerate until solid (roughly 25 minutes in the freezer).

They are creamy, rich, cool, and delicious. My kids thought they were eating regular chocolate. A super tasty treat.

Although these are made with healthier ingredients, they are probably pretty high in calories, so if you’re watching those, be aware.

    Oh yum!!! I’ve made this with layers of chocolate and pb, but mixing it all together is genius- so much faster and easier. Gotta try this! Btw, how are your migraines? I’ve been thinking of you!!

      Hi Laura, Thank you so much! These are so yummy, my kids and I love them. Thank you so much for asking about my migraines, I have days that are OK and really bad days. I ran a race on Sat. and about two hours after the race, I had a full blown attack, but then the next day, it was slightly better. Today, it’s not bad either. Ups and downs, but still not completely myself. I see the neurologist today, hoping to have some answers. Miss you so much!! xo
