Recipe Notes

*You can use 1/3 c dark chocolate chips and melt using a double boiler method or bakers melting chocolate in the microwave.
* *I use cold pressed, unrefined coconut oil. I don't taste coconut, but if it really bothers you, try the refined coconut oil.
***Use almond butter or sunflower seed butter if nut or peanut allergies!
