Super Starts Here.

Amazing Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Cups

on April 6, 2013


I’ve created a chocolate monster.  It all started with potty training.  My daughter figured it out in 3 days, my son, on the other hand was a bit more challenging.  He refused to poop in a potty.  So after three months of pull-ups we decided to do what any sleep deprived, desperate parent would do and we went cold turkey.  I won’t disgust you with the details of all the accidents that occurred as a result, but one day after exhausting everything from magical wands that have super potty powers to stickers, I used chocolate as a bribe.  And bam!  He went in the potty. After two successful weeks, I stopped the incentive, but it was too late.  Chocolate became the prize and now I find myself negotiating chocolate on a regular basis.  Most commercial chocolates, like Hershey kisses etc are filled with sugar and have very little cocoa, so I am trying to use higher quality, darker chocolate and making some of my own treats.  Here’s one we made yesterday, it was a huge hit! And yes, it’s better than Reese’s!

What you’ll need:

1 16oz bag chocolate chips

1tblsp coconut oil

2 ripe bananas

Peanut Butter

24 mini muffin cups

First, line the pan with the muffin cups,

Then, melt chocolate chips with coconut oil in a pot over boiling water,


Slice bananas,


Place one piece in each cup,



Top each banana with a teaspoon of peanut butter,


Once chocolate is melted, using a tablespoon, cover each banana with chocolate
