Primal Fudge

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups1

Dessert . . . a rarity in our house but it did happen and I would like the record to reflect that.

Primal Fudge (slightly modified from original link)

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup high quality cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup smooth almond butter
  • 1/2 cup raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (if desired)

Melt coconut oil. Blend all ingredients, except for peanut butter, together in a food processor or blender. Pour into paper lined muffin tin cups or silicon muffin cups and fill half-inch full. Makes 10. Chill for 30 minutes or freeze for 10 minutes. When firm, remove.  Add peanut butter to the top of each cup, if desired. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

** My husband and I felt that these were quite heavy on the coconut flavor.  To cut down on this, we topped each one with peanut butter as an impromptu frosting.  However, I would probably use peanut butter as a substitute for the almond butter in the future.  Additionally, these were very rich.  I would suggest making them in mini-muffin cups instead.
