Makes 6 oat butter cups - serving size 1 oat butter cup
1/3 cup oat butter
1 cup dark chocolate
1 tsp coconut oil
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil using a double boiler or microwave.
Set 6 silicone muffin cups on a baking trap or line a muffin tin with 6 liners.
Once the chocolate has melted and is shiny and smooth add a tablespoon to each muffin cup. Swirl around so that the bottom and of each cup is coated. Allow the chocolate to go slight up the sides of each cup.Set in the freezer for 15 minutes to set.
Once the chocolate has set add a heaping teaspoon of the oat butter to the center of each cup. Make sure the oat butter is flatten down a bit so the top layer of chocolate can evenly coat.
Use the remaining chocolate and add about a tablespoon to each cup to cover the oat butter. Tap the silicone muffin cups or the muffin tin to get the chocolate to spread over the top and cover the oat butter. You will need to work relatively quickly as the cold cups/pan will harden the top layer of chocolate pretty quickly.
Set back in the freezer for another 15 minutes to set.
Store these in the fridge or freezer to keep the chocolate from melting.
