4 Ingredient Valentine’s Day Dessert


Homemade Valentine’s Day Treat

Happy Valentine’s Day! I realize this is an unpopular holiday for some, but I’ve loved this holiday my whole life. I’ve always loved the idea of love I guess! But, I get it. It’s not everyone’s favorite holiday.


Even if it’s a day you don't look forward to, everyone loves treats, right? I tested out a new recipe this week that won’t take you too far off track if you have goals in mind.


My husband’s favorite treat is anything Reese’s. While I have no problem indulging occasionally, I thought I’d give homemade Reese’s that are a bit more healthy a shot! They are so simple and actually taste really good! And, with just 4 ingredients, you can feel good about giving them to your family.

 

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Valentine’s Hearts

 

Chocolate Layer

  • ½ C Coconut Oil

  • ¼ C Cocoa Powder

  • ¼ C Honey

 

Peanut Butter Layer

  • ½ C Coconut Oil

  • ½ C Peanut Butter

  • ¼ C Honey

  • 1 tsp Vanilla

Instructions

You will need a silicone pan with heart shapes. For the chocolate layer, melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over medium heat. When melted down into a liquid, pour into a separate bowl. Add the cocoa powder and honey and mix well. Carefully pour into silicone shapes. Pop this into the freezer for at least 10 minutes. They freeze quickly, so you don’t have to wait much longer.

 

For the peanut butter layer, melt the coconut oil again to a liquid state. Pour into a bowl, add your peanut butter, honey, and vanilla and mix until smooth. Pull your hardened chocolate layer out of the freezer and pour the peanut butter mixture on top. Place this back in the freezer for another 10-20 minutes. Pull the hearts out and pop them out of the silicone when hardened. Enjoy!

 

4 Ingredient Valentine’s Day Dessert

These treats would be fun for any holiday. If you’re not into hearts, get stars, clovers, flowers or whatever shape you’d want to create. They are a healthy alternative and are so simple to make!

 

Until next time,
