Healthy, raw, peanut butter chocolate cups

A few months ago, the lovely Georgie from Greens of the stonage, put together a recipe for Evolution Organics. She made raw and vegan Mars bars using Vivo Life Raw Perform Protein Salted Maca Caramel (check the recipe here).

I made Georgie's recipe and they were sweet, tasty and highly addictive. Now, I have never been a Mars bars kind of girl. I prefer Reese's... I love my chocolate peanut butter cups.

I wanted a healthier, easy to make, option that felt naughty. Since then, I have kept a supply in our freezer at home and we all love them (daughter included).

Raw Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (Make between 9-12 cups)

Ingredients
100g cacao liquor
50g Bulletprood Raw Cacao Butter, chopped
2-3 tablespoons maple syrup or coconut nectar
2 scoops Planet Paleo Pure Collagen

Filling
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1-2 teaspoon maple syrup or coconut nectar

Directions

  1. Gently melt the cacao liquor and cacao butter in a bowl over simmering water.
  2. Once melted add the sweetener and collagen powder.
  3. Fill in the silicone mold with a tablespoon of chocolate and let it set for 15 minutes in the freezer.
  4. Mix the ingredients for the filling together and set aside until needed.
  5. Add a teaspoon of the peanut butter mix on the chocolate "disk", flatten it with the back of a spoon and cover with another spoonful of chocolate.
  6. Let it set in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, take out of the mold.
  7. These beauties will keep in the freezer for 2 weeks.

* To make this recipe vegan, omit the Pure Collagen. I used it because of the benefit it has on my overall health and skin.
