Beauty & Brain Boosting Coconut Butter Cups

By Sam Negrin

Like peanut butter cups, but better. These easy-to-make dark chocolate bites are filled with Pearl Butter's latest creation of super food coconut butters. Besides coconut butter already containing healthy fats for brain and beauty benefits, founder Kati Holland added even more to them mix. The pink Beauty Butter is full of pitaya and pearl—boasting benefits of increased collagen, anti-aging, and an overall brighter complexion. The blue Brain Butter is full of spirulina—boasting benefits of anti-inflammation, improved memory, energy and overall focus.

We decided to add these yummy butters to our everyday indulgence (dark chocolate) for a healthy bite that is totally guilt-free, even encouraged. You can sub in other types of nut butters in this recipe, if you'd like! These are perfect to keep in your fridge at all times, or make before a party for a fun snack. Here's how it's done:
