Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

So I had trouble knowing what to call these. Because one: It's quite chocolatey-almost dark. And two it's not as peanut-buttery as a reeses cup, but you can still taste the peanut butter.

First: I'm not a fan of peanut buttery treats, but these, I LOVE. There just so darn fudgy.
Second: My whole family LOVED these. Like smother with your tongue and close your eyes kind of love.
Third: I need more healthy treat ideas to get me through NOT splurging on UNhealthy things.
Fourth: They are dark chocolatey and you don't taste TOO much peanut butter but you still taste it.
And finally: These are the easiest healthy treats I've found thus far, so enjoy. Thoroughly.

1 cup Coconut Oil
1 cup Chunky Peanut Butter (or smooth if you want zero texture;)
1 cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup Honey
1 tsp Vanilla

(To make this so healthy and happy, use organic oil, homemade or organic peanut butter, raw honey, good cocoa and homemade vanilla).

First slowly melt the coconut oil over the oven on med/low in a small sauce pan and when it's almost all melted, pour in the peanut butter and honey and stir it up so it's all a little warm, not hot. Take off the stove and add vanilla.

Get out your food processor (or blender-I think would work fine). Put the warm mixture in and add your cocoa and mix it all up. You don't need to mix much.

Pour into cupcake liners (about a half inch). Freeze for about 10 minutes 
(To hurry the cool-down process for the impatient group like Mwah). Then keep refrigerated.

YIELD: 20 cups
{If you half this recipe you can make about 24 small mini sized cups}

*I have big front teeth. I love my big teeth...but when it comes to 'bite' pictures it looks like a rabbit chewed on it*

Let me know if you make these! The only thing is, one cup is still a little much for me, so I'm thinking I'm going to half this recipe and make bite sized cups with mini muffin tins and liners. 

-Thanks Mindy from Creating Naturally and stay tuned for that upcoming project I posted about earlier...HINT: My kids can't stop playing with it! Seriously. Get in BED KIDS! 

See you soon,
