Perfection doesn’t exist. And the pursuit of it is exhausting. And moves us away from who we are.
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp cocoa powder (25g)
- nunaturals vanilla drops to taste, or 2 tbsp liquid sweetener (such as pure maple syrup or agave)
- 1/4 cup liquid virgin coconut oil (Or omit these first three ingredients and simply melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips instead.) (50g)
- 2 tbsp pumpkin puree (Sweet potato would work, too.) (30g)
- 2 tbsp peanut butter (You might be able to sub 2 more tbsp pumpkin for a lower-fat version, but I haven’t tried it. Feel free to sub another nut butter in place of the peanut butter.) (30g)
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon (and optional pinch pumpkin pie spice)
Stir first three ingredients together until it makes a sauce (If using the stevia version, you might want to add a little extra oil for a thinner consistency). Fill just the very bottoms of cupcake liners, mini cupcake liners, or candy molds with chocolate, reserving the rest. Then freeze 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine all other ingredients and stir to form a paste. (If you use refrigerated peanut butter, it’s best to heat the nut butter a bit first, so it’ll mix more easily.) Take liners from freezer and top each with filling (1 teaspoon in each of ten, if using mini cupcake liners). Cover with more chocolate, and freeze until solid. (You won’t use all the chocolate, but I’m sure you can find yummy ways to use the extra…) Unless you’ve used the non-coconut version, it’s best to keep these in the freezer.
Be careful who you vent to.

Just remember, even your worst days only have twenty-four hours
Never apologize for burning too brightly or collapsing into yourself every night. That is how galaxies are made.
My life is a struggle between my need for acceptance, my fear of rejection, and a desire to not care at all.
