Dark Chocolate Sun Butter Cups

My entire life I have NEVER eaten a peanut butter cup as I am allergic, so ever since discovering sunflower seed butter it has been on my list to make my own, & a way healthier version at that. This has to be the simplest
recipe & treat ever, only 2 ingredients & basically only 3 easy steps. Not only that but also was AMAZINGLY delicious, a new favorite candy, seriously exceeding my expectations-- I consider it a little taste of heaven. 

This is also a great & cute way to celebrate your valentine without making them feel guilty, you could include a variety of healthy chocolate treats (dipped strawberries, coffee beans, dried fruit, pretzels or variations of this for them to indulge in (coconut, almonds, bananas or a fruit puree or add in some chia seeds for a boost of nutrients). No more excuses for eating those store-bought unhealthy candies, make your own knowing its much cleaner & tastier!

Dark Chocolate Sun Butter Cups: (makes 2)
Ingredients:
1 70%+ Dark Chocolate Bar (I used a small bar)
2 T sun butter (or other nut butter)

Directions: 

  • In a measuring cup or small bowl, break up the chocolate & melt in the microwave, using increments-- should take no more than 2 minutes.
  • Place 2+ liners in your muffin tin, depending on the amount of chocolate you have or how many sun butter cups you want to make.
  • Drizzle or spoon a layer of chocolate on the bottom, add 1 Tablespoon of sun butter (adjust to preference) gently to the first chocolate layer. Next add an additional layer of chocolate, making sure to cover all sides of the cup.
  • Repeat until all the chocolate is gone. Place in the freezer for a few minutes or refrigerator to settle. Remove paper liner & enjoy!
