Hey there lovely people!

Hope you are all enjoying the weekend as much as I am…my salted peanut butter cups will certainly add a spring to your step, you will not believe how super simple and addictive they are, seriously…they are rich in antioxidants from the raw cocoa powder and full of protein from the peanut butter…the sugar? Only maple syrup! Delicious and healthy…sound good to you? Thought i8t would. All you need is:

For the chocolate shell:
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of raw cocoa powder (no alternatives please)
2 tablespoons of maple syrup

For the delicious peanut butter filling:
2 tablespoons of unsalted natural peanut butter (organic is preferable)
1 tablespoon of coconut oil (melted)
Generous pinch of Himalayan salt
1 tablespoon of maple syrup

Simply melt the ingredients for your chocolate shell very gently and fill your cupcake cases (you will need cupcake liners-about 6 medium or 12 mini ones) ¼ of the way, spread to the sides a little with your teaspoon. Next, in a small bowl whisk up your peanut butter filling, making sure it is thoroughly combined; this will literally take 10 seconds. Fill up your mini moulds with approximately half a teaspoon of your peanut mixture if you are using mini cases or one teaspoon if you are using medium cases and simply top off gently with the remaining chocolate mixture. Pop it in the freezer for 10 (yes, 10!) minutes and eat right away! You will love them.

Happy Baking!
