This is a paleo-friendly version of a favorite treat, made from sunflower seed butter, natural sweeteners, coconut oil, and dark chocolate.


  • 2/3 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate


  1. Prepare silicone candy molds or a mini-muffin pan with 24 paper liners.
  2. If the coconut oil is solid, melt it. Combine with sunflower seed butter, honey, vanilla, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a double boiler, gently melt the chocolate, stirring constantly.
  4. Take about half of the chocolate and divide it among the molds or muffin tins. You only want a small amount – just enough to put a thin coating on the bottom of each.
  5. Put the molds or pan in the refrigerator for about 10 minute so the chocolate can set.
  6. Remove from refrigerator and divide the sunflower seed butter mixture among the molds.
  7. Then carefully drizzle a thin layer of chocolate over each, dividing the remaining chocolate evenly.
  8. Place in refrigerator until set.
  9. Serve cold or at room temperature, but you probably want to store them in a cool room or in the refrigerator.
