Vegan Peanut Butter Cup Hearts

Anyone who has tried the mass produced peanut butter cups knows they just get sickly and sugary and not much else, So these are my simple take on the shop bought ones...Only Better! 

Ingredients Chocolate
1/2 cup Cacao Powder
1 cup of Coconut oil
1/4-1/2 cup of Maple syrup or Agave Nectar (to taste)

Ingredients Peanut Butter Filling
4 Tbsp Maple syrup or Agave nectar (depends on the peanut butter you use so sweeten to individual taste)
3/4 cup Peanut butter
1/4 cup Coconut flour or more or less depending on the consistency
1/2 tsp Salt (depends of the peanut butter you use...taste along the way!

Melt coconut oil in microwave (remove lid) or place the jar in the sink with boiling hot water in it till melted, In a bowl add cacao powder, coconut oil, and maple syrup and stir, that's your chocolate done set aside.
In a separate bowl, Put your peanut butter and maple syrup and stir, Then add the coconut flour a bit at a time till it becomes a paste and doesn't stick too much to your fingers.
On a tray set out patty pans or molds, Pour a table spoon or so of chocolate into each mold leaving enough room to add the center and more chocolate on top, Make small balls from the peanut mixture, put a peanut mixture ball in to each mold, Then top each one with remaining chocolate and pop in to the freezer, Store in the fridge or freezer, will last a week or 2 even longer (if they don't get eaten first!)  Enjoy!  =)
