Who doesn’t love minions? They are the cutest little creatures that both adults and kids LOVE! So what better chocolate to make than a minions homemade “Reese’s” cup thats actually pretty healthy for you. As long as you don’t eat all of them… although they are so scrumptious I wouldn’t blame you if you did! This is another super easy recipe that you can make in advance and keep in the fridge as a go to snack.
The dark chocolate provides relief for those of you out there on a health kick but wanting a candy bar along with added protein from the almond butter/ peanut butter. This is also a great treat for the kiddos when they get done with chores and you want to give them something sweet that isn’t super high in sugar.
Okie dokie.. so for the “Minion mold” I personally got mine from stater brothers with a few boxes of jello, but if stater’s doesn’t have the molds good news is I also found them on amazon.. just type in “Minion chocolate mold”
This is the set that I got from stater brother’s:
Besides the minion mold you will also need:
- coconut oil
- dark melting chocolate
- 1 cup peanut butter or almond butter to start
At this time add the chocolate to a bowl with about a tbsp of coconut oil and heat in the microwave. I would start out with 1 minute 30 seconds, take it out and stir with a spatula then continue for about 30 seconds till the chocolate is nice and melted. If you need to add a little more coconut oil to make it nice and smooth that’s fine.
When your chocolate is nice and smooth use a large spoon to drizzle the first layer into the mold. Make sure to poor a generous amount that covers the bottom half of the mold. When you fill your molds go ahead and stick them in the freezer for 5 minutes
While the molds are cooling I like to heat p the peanut butter/almond butter, so its just as easy to poor into the molds and it doesnt end up clumped more in one section. Take the molds out of the freezer and drizzle the desired amount of peanut butter or any other nut butter over the cooled chocolate. Then right on top of the peanut butter add the last layer of chocolate (You may need to re-heat it). Let it cool in the freezer for at least 20 minutes before popping out of the molds!!
Annnnddd there you have it… you end up with these Scrum-Ditilly-Umptious chocolate bars.. Are they not ADORABLE?!
Let me know if you like them!! Or what Nut butter/ chocolate you used!!
