PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE BITES

Reese's Pieces was always my favourite chocolate bar. This recipe is 100x healthier, tastier, and so easy and fun to make! I found this recipe on the site listed below but I changed up how I made them. The best part is that they are cruelty-free treats, meaning no animals suffered in the making of these glorious bite sized mouth watering peanut butter cups and eggs. Double the recipe below to make an bountiful amount to share with family and friends. Enjoy and Happy Easter! :D 

 Organic Ingredients

PEANUT BUTTER FILLING
INGREDIENTS
1 cup smooth peanut butter
8 medjool dates
1.5 tbsp agave nectar
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 pinch sea salt

PREPARATION
1. In a high speed blender blend the peanut butter adding one pitted date at a time.
2. Add the agave, coconut oil, sea salt and flour.
3. Roll into eggs and put in freezer for 20 minutes.

CHOCOLATE COATING 
INGREDIENTS
4 tbsp cacao powder
4 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp agave nectar

PREPARATION
1. Melt coconut oil in a pot on the stove, when melted pour into bowl.
2. Add the agave and cacao powder to the bowl and mix. Chocolate sauce should not run off spoon, if too runny then put it in the fridge until it thickens so that it will sit on the eggs better when dipped.
3. Dip the frozen peanut butter eggs into the chocolate and freeze. 
4. Take the eggs and cups out of the freezer after an hour or so and then keep in the fridge until about 30 minutes before eating or serving.

Peanut Butter Eggs

*For the peanut butter cups simply pour the chocolate sauce into a cupcake paper and put in the freezer for 10 minutes. Then add the peanut butter layer and freeze for another few minutes. At last, add more chocolate sauce to the top and freeze. 
 Hello superfood Reese's!
 Easter is served :P
Taste testing, yes...delicious!
TIP: I made two different chocolate sauces, one had regular organic coconut oil and the other one had organic coconut oil that did not taste or smell like coconuts. I find that the scentless and tasteless coconut oil worked better for this recipe.  

HAPPY EASTER!!!!
