Melt-in-your-mouth lemon butter cups

Misha cuddles on a sleeping bag while he waits for the late June snow to end.
It's hard to believe that just a week ago I was shivering in my backpacking tent while it rained, hailed and snowed outside. Now, there's a heat wave with temps forecast to reach record 100+ degrees. It is almost July 4th but does anyone understand our weather anymore?

Misha and Nika enjoy the cooler temps in the upper elevations.

Well, I for one will be seeking shade and air conditioning for the next five days. I also will be munching on melt-in-your-mouth lemon butter cups for the Fourth of July and the first of July, second of July and the third of July. You get the picture. Lemon butter cups are addictive.
Melt-in-your-mouth lemon butter cups
Lemon butter cups  (ACD-Phase 1 and up) are like chocolate for those of us who cannot eat chocolate. They should be considered dangerous because they are super simple to make.

Here are the five ingredients you need:

1/2 cup unsweetened sunbutter
3 T. fresh lemon juice
3 T. softened coconut oil or coconut butter
dash of sea salt
2 tsp. freshly grated lemon zest
Optional: drop of sweetener of choice

 Here's what you do:

Mix your ingredients in a small bowl. You can keep this recipe raw or soften the ingredients in the microwave for easy blending. Spoon the mixture into a silicone mini-muffin pan or individual silicone cupcake containers. Place in the fridge to harden the lemon butter cups. Note: these also can be kept in the freezer for a super cool lemon treat!
