Homemade "reecie" cups...

Around these parts, a certain candy that has a peanut butter filling with chocolate coating is called a reecie cup.  My daughters LOVE this candy but I don't buy it often because they pretty much inhale the stuff.  I was bored, hot, sleepy, and hungry for chocolate when I came up with an alternative I don't mind serving to them more often.

Reecie Cups

Just over a cup, maybe 1.5 cups, of crunchy peanut butter
a tablespoon or so of chia seeds
about 2 tablespoons coconut oil
about 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup or honey, or sugar, or whatever kind of sweetener you like.

Mix well.  This will be kind of thin but not soupy.  It won't drip off your spoon but will fall with a shake or two.

about a cup of chocolate chips(semi-sweet is my favorite), melted for a minute in the microwave
about 2 tablespoons coconut oil

Mix together til smooth.

Set out mini-muffin sized, plain paper cupcake liners on a baking sheet.

Put about 1/2 a teaspoon of chocolate mixture in the bottom of a liner.  Put about a heaping tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture on top of the chocolate.  Then drop more chocolate on top.  Freeze about 30 minutes and store(haha) in freezer.  Eat these with the wrapper held around them for the least mess.  They do melt fast!

(I filled 12 liners and ended up with maybe enough peanut butter to do 6 more but I melted more chips and mixed in with it to make a different goodie)
