Today I’m going to share a recipe I absolutely love. I have found several Healthy Almond Butter Cups recipes but I had to tweak this one to my liking. I always get a chocolate craving and I know dark chocolate is best for you but besides mint chocolate chip ice cream I never really cared for the taste of it, until this recipe. This recipe reminds me of a time with one of my childhood besties when we made a fort and created desserts. We made our own homemade peanut butter cups and they came out perfectly. We could never remember how we got them to come out so perfect but I think this recipe does the job!
Doesn’t that just look delicious?!! Oh, and it really hits the spot for a chocolate craving 😉
This Makes 12-14 minis or 6 full sized cups
- 7 oz. dark chocolate (not to exceed 70%)
- 1/2 cup natural almond butter (I use a super-smooth blend)
- 2 Tbsp. honey
- 1 Tbsp. powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp. fresh ground pink Himalayan salt
Put all the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 45-second intervals, stirring in between until all chocolate is melty smooth.
Line a mini cup muffin tray with mini liners. Spoon approximately one teaspoon of the chocolate in the bottom of each cup.
Mix the almond butter, honey, powdered sugar, vanilla, and salt together until smooth to make the filling.
Scoop out a teaspoon of the almond butter filling and roll it into a ball with your hands. Place in the cup filled with chocolate and gently press down to flatten out a bit. Repeat this for all cups.
Spoon another teaspoon of chocolate over the almond butter filling for each cup. You may need to add a little more chocolate here and there to completely cover the almond butter, or roll around a bit to completely cover them all.
Get a silicone muffin pan here.
Once you have them all covered, place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to set. Or if you have time let sit in the fridge overnight. Keep them in the fridge or you can keep them in a covered container at room temperature.
This Almond Butter Cup recipe is super fun to do with the kiddos and they love to help roll the almond butter into balls.
