This is one of Alena's favorite candies. It is easy to make and you can put it in any shaped mold!
PEANUT BUTTER CUPS (3.36:1 Ratio)
25g Peanut Butter (I use Trader Joes or Simply Jif)
25g Unsweetened Bakers Chocolate
30g Coconut Oil
Liquid Sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to taste
Clear off a space in your freezer. In a microwave safe bowl, melt peanut butter and 15g of the oil at 10 second increments until melted. Stir in liquid sweetener to taste. Pour into molds. Place in freezer until hardened.
While waiting for the peanut butter to harden, place chocolate and remaining 15g of oil into a microwave safe bowl and heat at 10 second intervals until melted. It helps to stir once it begins to melt. Once melted, add sweetener to taste.
Take frozen peanut butter molds out of freezer. Carefully pour chocolate mixture on top and place back into the freezer. If you try to do this before the peanut butter is fully hardened, it will make a mess, so be patient! Once the candies have hardened, take out of freezer and pop out of molds. Place in plastic baggy or other container and store in the refrigerator or freezer to store. These will melt easily if left out in a warm room, so treat them carefully!
