Healthy Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butta and chocolate have always had a special place in my heart.  This recipe is super simple and a much healthier take on the typical peanut butter cup that is filled with chemicals and junk! You can easily modify this with any nut butter of choice or even coconut butter:)

  • 1/2 c organic peanut or sunflower seed butter
  • 3 T coconut oil-divided

  2. Melt roughly 12-15 oz of dairy free chocolate chips with 1 T coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl or one the stove top in a double boiler
