  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup Mayver's smooth peanut butter
  • Large pinch of sea salt


  • Arrange small chocolate papers on a tray.
  • Combine the coconut oil and cacao powder until smooth, then stir in the syrup and coconut cream.
  • Pour a thin layer into the bottom of the chocolate papers.
  • Freeze for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the freezer and spoon ⅓ teaspoon nut butter into each one.
  • Pour the remaining cacao mixture on top and scatter sea salt over.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes until set (or, if you’re short of time, freeze them).
  • Eat straight from the fridge – these won’t last at room temperature.


You know those junky peanut butter cups you can buy? Well, these are same-same-but-way-better. The coconut cream in this recipe makes the ‘chocolate’ smoother. Interestingly, I find the more coconut cream you use, the harder the chocolate texture.
