Peanut Butter Cups: 3-Ingredient Clean Eating Candy!

Tonight is Trick or Treat night in my neighborhood. This means CANDY everywhere. Instead of completely denying myself, and relying only on will power, I will limit myself to two piece of my favorite small, bite-sized candy (Twix), and I made these in advance so, I can eat clean candy, and not feel like I fell off track!

This recipe takes about 5 minutes to put together and I swapped out the almond butter for natural peanut butter because that is what I had in the house. I love how they turned out and they are the perfect "candy" to help me stay away from all the Halloween treats, or a dessert bite to curb my after dinner craving for chocolate. I used a mini muffin tin to shape them but you could also use an ice cub tray.

Try them and let me know how they turned out!

INGREDIENTS (this will make 8 peanut butter cups)
4 tablespoons of coconut oil
8 tablespoons of chocolate Shakeology (you can use vegan chocolate as well)
4 teaspoons of natural peanut butter (or any nut butter of your choice, or make them with sunflower seed butter for a nut-free option).

DIRECTIONS
1. Place 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds until the coconut oil is liquefied.

2. Stir in 4 tablespoons of chocolate Shakeology. Divide the chocolate mixture evenly between 8 spots in a mini muffin tin. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes.

3. Pull the muffin tray out of the freezer. Place a half a teaspoon of peanut butter on top of each chocolate disk. Spread the peanut butter evenly over the hardened chocolate with a knife.

4. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in the microwave. Stir in the remaining 4 tablespoons of chocolate shakeology in. Use this to pour on top of the peanut butter layer. **You will want to do this in 2 batches so it doesn’t harden up on you while the first layer of chocolate is hardening in the freezer.

5. Place the muffin tin back in the freezer and leave it in there for at least 30 minutes.

6. The chocolate cups will slide easily out of the tin. Keep the cups stored in the fridge or freezer for the best consistency!
