You will need to have:
1/2 cup coconut butter
1/4 cup coconut oil (or all butter or oil)
1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped out – or 1/2 tsp pure vanilla essence
1 tbsp raw honey, agave, maple syrup, coconut nectar or rice syrup to sweeten (optional)
2 tbsp almond/pistachio/cashew butter for the filling.
Melt all the ingredients together (no need if the day is warm), apart from the nut butter.
Taste, and if need be, adjust the flavours how you like them.
Half fill tiny patties cases with the mixture then spoon in a little nut butter.
Cover with more coconut mixture.
In warmer months put these little babies in the fridge/freezer to set. They’ll last months, assuming no one is home to eat them.
