If you’ve been on the 21 Day Fix for a while you might be hankering for something chocolate!!!! Thankfully there are some remedies! Remember these are treats, not dailies. These are also replacing a yellow!
Sure, you could settle for additive- and preservative-packed, store-bought treats. Or you invest a few minutes in the kitchen and enjoy these tempting-and pretty darn healthy-homemade goodies. -Autumn

In a previous challenge, my girl Michelle went EXTREME-an amped up version of the 21 Day Fix. She still needed to satisfy her chocolate craving. This was a quick fix for her! 1 tsp melted coconut oil mixed w/ 1 tsp of Chocolate Shakeology. Poured in the yellow lid and put in the freezer. Delicious! 😋
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (hat tip)
WHAT YOU WILL NEED (this will make 8 peanut butter cups)
4 tablespoons of coconut oil
8 tablespoons of chocolate shakeology
4 teaspoons of natural peanut butter
Place 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds until the coconut oil is liquefied.
Stir in 4 tablespoons of chocolate shakeology. Divide the chocolate mixture evenly between 8 spots in a mini muffin tin. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Pull the muffin tray out of the freezer. Place a half a teaspoon of peanut butter on top of each chocolate disk. Spread the peanut butter evenly over the hardened chocolate with a knife.
Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in the microwave. Stir in the remaining 4 tablespoons of chocolate shakeology in. Use this to pour on top of the peanut butter layer. **You will want to do this in 2 batches so it doesn’t harden up on you while the first layer of chocolate is hardening in the freezer.
Place the muffin tin back in the freezer and leave it in there for at least 30 minutes.
The chocolate cups will slide easily out of the tin. Keep the cups stored in the fridge or freezer for the best consistency!
