Honey-Sweetened Peanut Butter Cups

I love treats!  After almost two years off of refined and artificial sweeteners, I've been on the hunt for special treats for holidays and special occasions.  This is the recipe that inspired my search (and helped me realize how DELICIOUS real, whole treats taste!).  Thank you to my dear friend and fellow whole-food buddy Angelica for bringing these over.

Honey-Sweetened Peanut Butter Cups (Paleo, GF, DF)
1/2 c. coconut oil
1/2 c. natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
1/3 c. cocoa
1/3 c. raw honey
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. sea salt

Heat all ingredients in a sauce pan on medium heat until melted together.  Use mini  muffin pan and liners, and fill cups 3/4 full.  Makes 24.  Store in refrigerator (because of the coconut oil, they melt quickly).  I store these delights in my freezer and pull them out for special treats.  So yummy and quick!  Happy snacking!
