I don't know about you but I strongly believe that DECEMBER, the whole month of December should really be called the month of CHOCOLATE. Yes I know it is Jesus birthday or at least what we Christians celebrate as Jesus' Birthday and well that is REALLY, REALLY important and the 'reason for the season' but somehow I also think it is the season of CHOCOLATE. You know, it starts at Halloween and ends right after the New Year. This strong attraction to ALL THINGS SWEET. Hey maybe it is just me but with all this in mind and because I do know many folks like to know how to make HEALTHIER and still tasty treats and sooooo today's blog.
If you were paying attention this post is very similar to my Recipe FRIDAY post just before Thanksgiving. This recipe came from another blog site and it has PEANUT BUTTER and well that's about it for changes. Simple, easy, tasty and HEALTHY recipe.
Here are some pics of the process:
Already looking very tasty. Finished just in time for when the kiddies got home. LOVE THEM. Oh my goodness! Absolutely delicious. I have to say, in comparison to Maple Coconut Chocolates that I made 2 weeks ago, the Peanut Butter makes these so much better. And the Maple Coconut Chocolates from Things My Belly Likes were fantastic. So really you can probably make several versions of these depending on what YOU LIKE with your chocolate coconut 🙂
Here is the recipe from Delicious Obsessions:Healthy Homemade Peanut (or other Nut) Butter Cups with Coconut Oil 1 cup coconut oil 1/4 cup honey, maple syrup, coconut syrup, or brown rice syrup 1/4 cup organic cocoa powder
Alright so there you go. When you are craving some CHOCOLATE during this Christmas Season then just make a HEALTHY version that tastes awesome and that way you can still have your treat but you won't be eating junk.
