What you need:

4 tbsp coconut oil
4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 pack Splenda or 2-3 drops liquid Stevia – optional, sweeten to taste
2 tbsp nut butter – creamy or crunchy works fine
Sea salt – optional

Utensils needed:

Small microwave bowl
Small spoon for mixing and pouring
Rubber ice cube trays – if you can find cute shaped ones use them 



Step 1: Melt oil.

In a small microwave safe bowl melt the coconut oil until liquid in form, but not too hot.



Step 2: Add cocoa powder and sweetener.

Stir in the cocoa powder and as much sweetener as you’d like until the cocoa is mixed well and there are no longer chunks of cocoa powder.



Step 3: Pour into ice cube forms.

Using a small spoon pour the chocolate into each ice cube form filling them about 1/3 of the way up. The rubber ice cube trays are ideal for this recipe as they will be much easier to remove from the trays verses the traditional plastic trays. I found cute ones at the craft store that come in different shapes like hearts, flowers and stars.


Step 4: Freeze.

Place the tray in the freezer for 3-5 minutes or until the chocolate has set. The longer they are allowed to cool the better they turn out.



Step 5: Add nut butter.

With a small spoon place a small layer of the nut butter on top of the set chocolate, pressing it down with your finger. It’s a little messy but well worth the effort.



Step 6: Freeze.

Place the ice cube trays back in the freezer for another 5 minutes. The nut butter takes longer to set but if you’re in a hurry it’s okay to take them out before they are completely frozen.



Step 7: Top with chocolate.

With a small spoon carefully fill the ice cube forms with the remaining chocolate mixture. If you drip chocolate all over the ice cube tray simple take a damp paper towel and wipe around the edges until it’ clean.
*Optional – add a few sprinkles of sea salt on top for a sweet, salty addition.


Step 8: Freeze.

Place the ice cube trays back in the freezer for at least another 5 minutes or until you are ready to eat them. These are best kept in the freezer, or fridge until they are ready to be gobbled up.



Step 9. Eat up!

Warning: these are dangerously delicious! It’s very easy to eat the whole batch.
