Chocolate Shell:

Place the cacao butter in a small sauté pan and warm over the lowest heat, stirring often, melting the shavings into a liquid.

Add the cacao powder and whisk until combined, then add 2½ Tbsp. maple syrup and ⅛ tsp. salt. Whisk until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

Remove from heat and set aside.

Peanut Butter Filling:

In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, coconut oil, remaining 2 Tbsp. of maple syrup and remaining  tsp sea salt. Mix well.

Add one scoop of Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Superfood and stir until incorporated, creating a thick mixture.

Form small balls out of the peanut butter mixture, and place one into each cavity of the hardened chocolate cups.

Gently press down each ball of peanut butter to create a flat top.

Spoon more melted chocolate on top, spreading the chocolate into a flat layer, and filling in any gaps or holes.

Sprinkle the tops lightly with a few cacao sweet nibs, and place in the freezer for a minimum of 20 minutes longer and enjoy.
