Coconut Butter “Melties”
You will need:
- Coconut butter or Hot Chocolate Butter
- A refrigerator or (preferably) freezer
- If you prefer sweeter melties, feel free to add agave or stevia drops
- ice cube trays, candy molds, or soap molds (or spread onto wax paper)
Directions: Press the coconut butter or hot chocolate butter into the molds and fridge for at least ten minutes. (Or freeze if you’re super-impatient like me.) Then savor these melt-in-your-mouth treats and marvel at how something so simple can taste so good!
Above is the unused mold. I found it at Hobby Lobby in the cake-decorating section. Look in Michaels, Jo-Ann, Wal-Mart, or another craft store. Or just use an ice-cube tray. (Sometimes you can find cute-shaped ice cube molds too.) Another alternative: just spread out onto wax paper and freeze like that.
Side note: You can also use Homemade Coconut Butter.
I’m giving credit to my wonderful mom for the idea. Y’see, she bought chocolate molds to make homemade chocolates for Halloween. When I saw the molds on the counter, my little fingers gravitated right towards them! And when I looked for something to “shape,” guess what was conveniently sitting out on the counter… The good old Artisana coconut butter!
You can use Christmas molds, too!
Lately, I’ve been sprinkling cinnamon into my coconut butter, for Cinnabon Melties.

- 2 ounces of pre-cooked shredded chicken
- ½ cup of steamed broccoli, chopped up
- 1/3 cup of part skim shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 whole grain tortilla
- 2 tbsp plain, no fat Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp red pepper sauce
Combine Greek yogurt with hot sauce and set aside.
Heat chicken and broccoli in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Once heated through remove from the pan and place in a medium bowl.
Toss chicken and broccoli with salt, pepper and garlic powder and then set aside.
Place tortilla in the hot pan and allow to heat through on one side. Flip the tortilla and sprinkle half of the cheese over one half of the tortilla. Top cheese with broccoli and chicken and then sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top.
Using a spatula fold the tortilla over on to itself (into a half moon) and top with something heavy (ie. A weighted pan or my personal favorite, a teakettle). Allow to cook for a minute or two OR until the bottom lightly browed. Flip the tortilla and cook for another minute or two on the opposite side.
Remove Quesadilla from the pan and allow to cool for a minute or so before cutting into wedges. Top with spicy yogurt and Enjoy!!

Who’s got the balls to give this recipe try? :) haha. I did, and I couldn’t believe how good these Power balls turned out. The Power balls are amazing to have for breakfast or as a snack espeacially if you are in a hurry, and need just something you can grab and go. I also found out that you can use them as a gift (if you give them a nice wrap) or even a bribe :) You’ll see… Once you let someone taste your balls, you will never be forgotten. I promise.
P.S. The balls will be very tender when you take them out of the oven so don’t touch them. Let them cool down for 10 – 15 minutes and then put the entire sheet with all of your balls into the fridge. They will become more solid and won’t fall apart when you bite them.
Zucchini pizza boats - King Zucchini, basil, mozarella and tomatoes. I would bake the hell out of this.
