Chocolate Almond Butter Cups

Posted on

I’ve been making these for the past few months or so whenever I get a craving for something sweet but don’t want to whip out the sugar, flour and measuring spoons. I’ll usually make a batch every other week, then store them in tupperware and keep them in the fridge to have as dessert all week. They’re THE easiest things to make, and you only need three or four ingredients. Start to finish, they take about an hour to make. DO IT.

What You Need:

  • Half a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips (non dairy)
  • jar of almond butter on hand (unsalted)
  • sea salt
  • sliced almonds (optional)
  • 12 mini cupcake liners

What You Do:

  • Line 12 cupcake tins with mini cupcake liners
  • Using a double broiler, melt half a bag of chocolate chips over low heat, stirring frequently to make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn
  • Once melted, spoon in a dollop of chocolate into each cupcake liner
  • Shake the cupcake tray so that the chocolate spreads, covering the bottom of each cupcake liner
  • Next – spoon out around half a teaspoon of almond butter into each cupcake liner
  • Top each cup with more melted chocolate, covering the almond butter
  • Give the tray a few good shakes, letting the chocolate and AB even out in the cup
  • Finally, top with a dash of sea salt and sliced almonds (optional)
  • Place the tray in the fridge, wait about an hour for them to harden and then dig in!

You can also make these with peanut butter for a more “Reese’s Pieces” feel, but I prefer the AB myself :)
