These rich chocolate nut butter cups are like a healthified version of Resse’s! They’re super simple to make – all you need is a mini muffin tin or foil candy cups, and you can have delicious homemade chocolate treats in just 10 minutes. Eat them straight from the freezer for a perfect after-dinner treat!

 

Ingredients:

½ c. coconut oil

½ c. raw cacao or cocoa powder

½ c. almond or peanut butter

2 tbsp. pure maple syrup

½ tsp. vanilla

¼ tsp. salt

Crunchy toppings of choice!

 

Melt your coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat, then remove from heat and whisk ¼ c. of nut butter plus the maple, vanilla + salt. Pour a bit of the mixture into the bottom of lined mini muffin tins or foil candy cups, until they are just less than halfway full. Top each one with ½ tsp of nut butter, then pour remaining chocolate evenly over each one. Sprinkle with extra chopped nuts/seeds if desired. Place in the freezer for at least 1-2 hours to set, then enjoy!
