4-ingredient Chocolate Almond Butter Cups
1/2 cup coconut oil or cacao butter
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup raw almond butter
1 tbsp raw honey or agave
1. Put the coconut oil in a bowl, and place that bowl inside another bowl filled with warm water. This will allow the coconut oil to heat up just enough to melt, without killing the enzymes.
2. Add the cacao powder and honey, and mix well.
3. Place four muffin tin liners in a baking pan, and put about 1 tbsp of chocolate in the bottom of each. Place in the freezer to set for about 10 minutes, or until hard.
4. Put 1 tbsp of nut butter in the bottom of each cup. Be careful not to let the nut butter touch the sides of the cup, or the finished product will look messy.
5. Divide the rest of the chocolate equally between the tops of the cups, covering the nut butter completely. Place back in the freezer for another 10 minutes, or until hard.

Make these chocolate almond butter cups for a guilt-free treat for you and yours!”
