Well, this weekend I gave it a go making Peanut Butter Cups (or Bites) using coconut oil.
They came out DELICIOUS! So I am here today to tell you to try it!
It took me about an hour to make 30 mini candies.
Making approx 24 bites instead (see photo below) would take less time.
First, Make The Chocolate Recipe, as Posted in part one. ( or Click HERE)
Next, make HALF the PB Mixture in the PB BITES RECIPE BELOW ** NOTE! I made just HALF of the posted PB recipe. – using only 1/2 cup each of PB & sugar, and 1 TBSP coconut oil.
To make poured candy in molds or ice cube trays, like I did above, spoon a tiny bit of chocolate mix in the molds, and fridge for 5 minutes. ( if hand rolling PB Bites, omit this step )
Make the PB mix a bit loose, so you can spoon it in the mold over top of the chocolate. leave a little room at the top.
If either the pb mix or the chocolate mix is too loose, add a little more sugar. If it is too firm, add a touch more coconut oil.
Not too much – a little coconut oil goes a long way!.
Cover the PB mix with a bit more chocolate mix.
Fridge or freeze 30 minutes to overnight That’s it! You have amazingly delectable home made chocolates!
Cheers, and Happy Eating!
