Homemade Peanut Butter Cups
3/4 cup of all natural peanut, almond or sun butter
2 tablespoons local honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup of coconut oil or melted organic butter if you are not fond of coconut oil
4 ounces of unsweetened chocolate
2-4 tablespoons honey
1. In a small bowl combine the peanut butter, coconut oil or butter, vanilla, first 2 tablespoons honey. Mix until well combined.
2. Drop by the heaping teaspoon into mini liners in cupcake pans. Place in freezer.
3. Chop chocolate into small pieces and place in the top of a double broiler. Mix in the honey. Bring about ¼ of the pot of water to a boil and place the bowl on top. Watch the chocolate carefully so that it doesn't burn, stirring gently while the chocolate melts. When there are just a few chunks left in the chocolate, take off of the heat and allow it to melt completely.
4. Drop by the teaspoon over the peanut butter mixture and place back into the freezer. Freeze for 20 minutes. Take out, keep in the freezer or refrigerator and enjoy.
