Chocolate:
2 x 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
2 x 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 x 1/4 cup cocoa powder

Peanut Butter Filling:
1 cup natural peanut butter
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp + 2 tsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp cinnamon

Garnish: Caoca nibs, coarse Himalayan salt

Mix together the first set of melted coconut oil, maple syrup and raw cocoa powder in a bowl.
Spoon about 1/2 tbsp-1 tbsp into the bottom of muffin cups, it should make 12 large cups.
Place in the freezer for 10 minutes.

Mix together the ingredients for the peanut butter filling in a bowl. Mix well until it’s smooth and the nutritional yeast is mixed in completely.

Remove the chocolate cups from the freezer and spoon the peanut butter filling into each cup. It should be about 1 heaping tbsp/cup. Place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes or until hardened.

While the peanut butter is setting, mix together the second set of chocolate ingredients. Once the peanut butter cups are ready, spoon the mixed chocolate ingredients over top of the peanut butter.
Sprinkle with cacoa nibs and salt, if desired.

Place back in the fridge for about 10 minutes or until the chocolate is set.

Store in the freezer in an air-tight container. Makes 12 large cups.

Variation:  You could use another nut or seed butter to replace peanut butter.
