I made the recipe one afternoon, poured the finished product into silicon muffin cups, put them into the refrigerator and waited. I took my first bite of the hardened candy and shuddered - not enough cocoa for my taste. I obviously hadn't combined it well enough. The coconut oil had separated from the chocolate and my first bite contained way too much coconut oil.
That first batch I made, that was then remelted and remade, was a dark, rich chocolate color, but the peanut butter lightens up the color quite a bit.
Here's my tweaked recipe:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup raw honey
3 Tbsp cocoa
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp peanut butter
Heat the coconut oil in a saucepan until just melted. Add the raw honey and the peanut butter, stir well to mix. Add the vanilla extract and the cocoa, and whisk until well-combined. Spoon into silicon muffin cups or a silicon muffin pan. Refrigerate until solid. Enjoy!
