Healthier Chocolate PB Cups

This is a great healthy-ish treat if you need to appease a chocolate craving, but don't want to feel too guilty about it. I found it on Pinterest and I've seen it called "healthy fudge" or "primal fudge", but whatever you call it it is yummy and satisfying  My 6 year old especially loves this treat and begs me to make more all the time. Huge bonus is that it takes a few minutes to make and then about 30 minutes to set up in the fridge - almost instant gratification. 

Healthier Chocolate PB Cups

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup good quality cocoa powder (I found a great dutch process cocoa at Sprouts)
1/2 cup natural peanut or almond butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Melt coconut oil in microwave, it takes about 35 seconds. In a food processor or blender combine melted coconut oil, cocoa powder, peanut butter, honey, and vanilla. Process or blend until all ingredients are combined. Pour about 1/2 inch of the chocolate mixture into silicone muffin cups or paper lined muffin tin cups. Makes about 10 cups. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes or in freezer for 10 minutes. When firm remove from muffin cups and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
