Line a mini muffin tin with small cupcake liners. Add 2 inches of water to a large saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Then set a medium glass or ceramic mixing bowl on top, making sure it's not touching the water. Add to the bowl 50g of the Organic Cacao Liquor Buttons and let melt - 2-3 minutes. Once starting to melt add 1 tsp vanilla essence, 1 tsp coconut nectar and a pinch of salt and stir. Taste and adjust flavour if needed.
Pour a small amount of the chocolate mixture into the bottom of each liner, until the bottom is thinly covered. Then place in the freezer for 10mins for the chocolate to harden. Mix 70g peanut butter, 1 tsp coconut nectar and a pinch of salt. Once the chocolate has hardened spoon peanut butter mixture onto each of the chocolate layers. Place back in the freezer to harden. Once the mixture has hardened repeat the chocolate method and spoon chocolate onto each of the peanut butter layers. Place back in the freezer for 10mins then store in the fridge.
