  2. In a Medium bowl with an electric mixer, mix together all the chocolate ingredients, and set aside.
  3. In a food processor, grind the raw pecans until they are a fine crumb consistency. Add in the honey, vanilla and salt, and pulse until it holds together when you squeeze it.
  4. Place 1 teaspoon of chocolate mixture in the bottom of each muffin cup, and press flat and evenly with your fingers.
  5. Scoop a scant teaspoon of pecan filling onto each muffin cup and press flat and evenly to cover the chocolate bottom.
  6. Finely, add the remaining chocolate mixture to the tops of each chocolate butter cup and press evenly. It will be a scant teaspoon for each. It’s okay if they are not perfectly covered. They are pretty that way.
  7. Freeze for 30 minutes.

Most everyone knows that bananas are a good source of potassium, but did you also know they are a source of vitamin B6 which our body does not store and is used to make antibodies to fight infection?
