Peanut Butter Chocolate Nicecream Cups

I just want peanut butter and chocolate all day, every day. How many ways can I do this combination? The answer is ENDLESS! πŸ™‚ Today was 106 degrees outside, so I needed my peanut butter and chocolate to be COLD! Boom, born were these little decadent treats! ❀

BASE:Β 

3/4 C. Peanuts

3/4 C. Soft Dates (if not soft, soak in water for 20 mins)

In a food processor, process peanuts until finely chopped then add dates. Once combined, roll base into 1-1/12 inch sized balls and press evenly into cupcake pan. (make sure you use cup cake liners or spray with non-stick oil. I brushed coconut oil on mine and it was still a little difficult to get out)

NICECREAM CENTER:

2 Large Bananas

1/3 C. Natural Peanut Butter

1/2 C. Full Fat Coconut Milk

In a food processor or blender ( I used my blender for this part) Blend Center ingredients together and pour evenly over base.

Let your nicecream cups sit in the freezer while you prepare the chocolate.

CHOCOLATE TOPPING:

1/3 C. Coconut Oil

3/4 C. Cocoa Powder (Carob Powder for Vegan)

2 TBSP Raw Organic AgaveΒ Optional: 1 stevia packet πŸ˜‰ my boyfriend likes his chocolate sweet, so I gave in this time and sweetened it a bit more. Β 

In a small bowl, whisk chocolate topping together and pour on top of your center. Let freeze for at least 2 hours.

❀ ❀ ❀ I hope you enjoy ❀ ❀ ❀
