Mac-n-Mo’s to win a $250,000 grant from Chase Small Business.
This recipe is inspired by my cousin who makes “Buckeyes,” a treat from Ohio that is similar to a chocolate peanut butter cup, but I have improved on the traditional buckeye in taste and nutrition, so let’s call them chocolate peanut butter cups:
Makes 6 large
2 very soft bananas
1/2 cup peanut butter and co. old fashioned smooth (BUT it would be wonderful with any of their flavors!)
1/2 cup of the morselicious mix
6 oz. chocolate (I used an unsweetened ghiradelli bar, but you can use any chocolate that will melt. Make sure it has a high percentage of cocoa and a low percentage of sugar!)
-Beat the first two ingredients with a mixer
-Stir in the morselicious mix
-Scoop into muffin cups with a cookie scooper, put in freezer for 1 hour
-Melt chocolate in pan and dip the cup in chocolate and place in freezer or fridge until your ready to enjoy (they won’t last long).
-You can skip the chocolate step and they will be just as MORSELICIOUS!
