Peanut Butter and Jelly Cups
Our take on the classic peanut butter cup. Customize your cravings with any nut butter and Potlicker combo. For something special, we love the chocolate peanut butter from our friends at Cape May Peanut Butter Company paired with Porter jelly. Yields 12.
½ cup peanut butter
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup jelly or jam
1T ground flax seed (optional)
Course sea salt for garnish
In a small saucepan on low heat, gently melt and stir coconut oil until it has a smooth and creamy consistency. You can also do this in the microwave by heating in 30 second intervals on 2% power.
Working in 2 parts, stir in the peanut butter and optional flax seed. Whip together until smooth.
Spoon 1 teaspoon of peanut butter mixture into mini muffin liners. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Add 1 teaspoon of jam to each cup. Dollop jelly in the center of the peanut butter base and squish the jelly into a uniform thickness, leaving space around the edges so that the jelly does not touch the liner.
Top with ½ -1 tablespoon of peanut butter mixture and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
If garnishing with salt, freeze for 1 minute, top with salt and return to freezer.
Store in the fridge or freezer and serve chilled.
