Jamie, the super -de-duper raw chef du cuisine at Blissful Kitchen
, is the creator of this to-LIVE-for recipe! Jamie used a decadent blend of heirloom, Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional Cacao and her own home made Jungle Peanut Butter to make these beauties. You can also use any one of our ready to go raw, organic nut butters to fill your cups! Pistachio, Macadamia or Pecan Nut Butter cups? Yum.

INGREDIENTS 1 c. Jungle Peanuts
½ c. Coconut Oil
2/3 c. Cacao Powder
2 tsp. Pure Vanilla Powder
6-8 Tbsp. raw honey or maple syrup Celtic sea salt, to taste METHOD
- Use any Wilderness Poets Raw Nut Butter or to make Jungle Peanut Butter: Process peanuts and sea salt in a VitaMix or high powered food processor for about 5- 10 minutes until creamy like peanut butter. Set aside.
- Mix all chocolate ingredients together in a VitaMix, starting with 6 tablespoons of sweetener, blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust sweetener to liking. (You can also use a bowl and an egg beater instead of a food processor.)
