Healthy Reece's Peanut Butter Cacao Carob Cups

My healthy Reece's Peanut Butter Cacao Carob Cups make the most scrumptious guilt-free dessert or the ideal mid-afternoon pick-me-up bursting with superfood powers from the coconut oil, coconut sugar, cacao and carob powder.

Here is the recipe I'm sure you've all been dying to get your hands on!

Ingredients (makes 8 cups) :
8 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp cacao powder
3 tbsp carob powder
5 tbsp sweetener of choice - I use half coconut sugar and half maple syrup but agave nectar works too!
1/2 cup organic peanut butter
4 drops vanilla essence
3/4 tbsp honey

1. Melt the coconut oil in a frying pan on a low heat. Stir in the cacao powder, carob powder and your sweetener of choice until it forms a liquid consistency.
2. Place 8 cupcake cases on a lined baking tray.
3. Add 3/4 tbsp of the melted chocolate mixture to each cupcake case.
4. Place in the freezer for 12-15 mins while the chocolate hardens.
5. Meanwhile, put the peanut butter, vanilla essence and honey together in a bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds on a low heat and then stir well.
6. Add an equal amount of the peanut butter mixture to each case then put back in the freezer for 8-10 mins
7. Add 1 tbsp of the remaining chocolate mixture to each case with any toppings you like: try fresh blueberries, dried goji berries, raw cacao nibs, dessiccated coconut or sultanas! Put in freezer for 15 mins.
8. Enjoy!!
