A homemade 21 Day Fix Approved Chocolate Coconut “Mounds” Cups that will satisfy your sweet tooth without costing you a treat swap!
Confession #69 – My sweet tooth has been killing me lately.
I usually get into trouble with peanut butter or too much cheese (anyone else?)…but lately I have been craving chocolate and sweets something fierce.
My timing isn’t great, either…with WAY too many candy hearts everywhere.
The silver lining of my troubles?
I have a new chocolate treat to share with you. And your valentine…because who wouldn’t want a couple of these wrapped up in heart shaped box?
Would you rather have an Almond Joy? Go ahead and add an almond or two.
There are NO chocolate chips here, either! It’s amazing what a little cocoa powder, honey, and coconut oil can do. I mean, where was this recipe my whole life? You can virtually never run out of chocolate if you know this little trick.
And for those of you who love your daily superfood, I have a Shakeology option for you guys. This is delicious with chocolate and with cafe late!
I have figured this out so it only counts as 2 teaspoons and 1/2 orange, but if you end up sneaking more than one, you may need to count it as a yellow instead, depending your plan.
Either way, it’s totally rich and delicious, and will definitely help kick that sweet tooth while sticking on plan.
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone.
