Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Blend all ingredients except chocolate) in a mixer until smooth. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler. DO NOT OVER-HEAT makes them gritty and tough.

Line a muffin tin (all I had was large paper muffin liners, but these would be perfect in mini muffins too). Pour a tablespoon or so of melted chocolate into the paper liner, and brush the chocolate up the sides, no need to be exact. The chocolate will harden almost instantly as you brush it up the sides. Fill with the nut butter filling, and place in the freezer.

Store under refrigeration or in the freezer! You could always use a zester to put some pretty chocolate curls on top, or a few extra chocolate chips.

These are amazing! Made them with my daughter to take to health class at school. The project was make a *healthier* junk food and also couldn't use peanuts due to allergies. We just poured the chocolate into a container and put it in the freezer until it hardened, then topped w/ the SunButter mixture and stuck in the freezer again. Turned out perfect!

I have made these several times now, they are great! DH and I like them with extra crunchy peanut butter. Just made a batch with creamy pb for our daughter's visit next week, using Tropical Traditions organic raw honey as sweetener. Mmm, so good! So much better than store-bought peanut butter cups.
