25 Mar Crunchy peanut butter cups
Hands up who’s obsessed with peanut butter? These crunchy peanut butter cups really hit the spot. They take 5 minutes to make, half an hour to freeze and only require a handful of ingredients. For that crunch we added activated buckinis and shredded coconut. These aren’t a guilty pleasure, they are simply a pleasure to eat!

- ½ cup of smooth peanut butter (or crunchy if you prefer)
- 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
- 2 decent pinches of salt
- 1 tbsp agave syrup or sweetener of your choice
- ¼ cup activated buckinis
- 1 tbsp shredded coconut
- 6 patty pans
- 1 tbsp cacao
- 14 Cacao butter buttons
- In a small bowl, combine peanut butter and melted coconut oil. Stir until completely smooth
- Add agave, salt and stir well
- Add shredded coconut and activated buckinis and stir through
- Pour mix evenly into 6 patty cakes.
- Place onto a plate or board and freeze for 30 minutes
- While freezing, in a double boiler or small pot on low heat, melt cacao butter buttons. Add cacao and stir well
- Pour into a bowl, and allow to cool to room temperature (or close to; this will help the chocolate drizzle set and look better)
- Pull out your peanut butter cups, and drizzle chocolate sauce over the top with a spoon
- Re-freeze for a further 15 minutes
