Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup peanut butter (or any nut butter)
  • 1 heaping tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
  • Sweetener (choose one): I use about 1 tablespoon Avage, about ½ teaspoon Truvia or a few drops of liquid stevia.
  • About 2 tablespoons chopped nuts. I used peanuts
  1. Grab a plate or small baking sheet to arrange your mini cupcake liners on.
  2. Place the coconut oil, peanut butter, and cocoa in a microwave-safe dish. I like using a large pyrex measuring cup because it's easier to pour later.
  3. Microwave until melted. Check every 30 seconds and give it a stir.
  4. Using a fork or small whisk to make sure it's well blended.
  5. Add your sweetener.
  6. Line the cupcake liners with your chopped nuts, then pour your melted mixture into each cup.
  7. Place in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes before sprinkling a little sea salt on each candy. Continue to chill for another 15-20 min until hardened.
