Vegan I Gluten Free


Serves: 12- 15 cups

Time: 20 minutes + freezing time


Muffin papers/tins

Bottom layer:

30g cacao paste, melted + 3 tbsp. cacao powder OR 1 cup vegan chocolate, melted

1 tbsp. maple syrup or honey

1/4 cup coconut oil


Filling:

1/3 cup almond butter


Top Layer:

40g cacao paste, melted + 1/4 cup cacao powder OR 1 cup vegan chocolate, melted

1 tbsp. maple syrup or honey

1/4 cup coconut oil

Sea salt



In a small sauce pan, melt the 'bottom layer' ingredients together on low. Stir frequently to keep from burning. You just want the chocolate to melt and the ingredients to be well combined. When the mixture is smooth remove from the heat.


Add ~1-2 tbsp. of the mixture into the muffin papers/tins. Place in the freezer until solid.


Add ~1 tsp. of almond butter into the center of the cups. Spread the nut butter slightly so it's in a thin layer. Return the cups to the freezer while you prepare the top layer.

In a small sauce pan combine all the 'top layer' ingredients, except for the sea salt, and melt over low heat. Stir frequently. Once smooth, remove the mixture from the heat.


Spoon ~1-2 tbsp. of the chocolate mixture into the cups to form the top layer. Use enough chocolate to cover the almond butter filling completely.


Sprinkle with sea salt.


Return the cups to the freezer and allow to harden fully.


Enjoy!
