Nut butter cups

Lots of people feel naughty indulging in chocolate, but for me it is (almost) an everyday food. Raw chocolates, free from; refined sugar, dairy and additives has a place in a healthy diet. Cacao butter is a source of vitamin E, which supports the health of our skin, hair, and nails. Cacao powder is a rich source of antioxidants, magnesium and iron, in fact, most of the time when we crave chocolate it is actually our bodies craving the magnesium.

Try making these nut butter cups with any type of nut butter filling, or you can simply skip the nut butter step and create plain chocolates.
