A healthy recreation of everyone's favorite chocolate peanut butter candy!


1/2cup raw cacao butter
4tablespoons agave syrup
1cup unsalted peanuts
2tablespoons coconut oil
1teaspoon nutritional yeast flakes


  1. Place the cacao butter and agave syrup in a Vitamix or high-speed blender and blend on high speed until liquid, then add the cacao powder and blend again to combine.
  2. Transfer to a bowl, then coat the bottom and sides of 6 mini paper muffin liners with the chocolate, reserving enough to make a lid for each one. Place in the freezer for 4 minutes to set.
  3. Meanwhile, wash and dry the blender jug and whiz the remaining ingredients to form a smooth butter.
  4. Divide the peanut butter between the chocolate cups and pour a layer of chocolate over the top.
  5. Return to the freezer for 5–10 minutes to set.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
