Ingredients Needed

  • 1 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Alternative Ingredients/Variations

Here are some ingredients you can use in place of the ones above:

Creamy almond butterCreamy peanut butter, cashew butter
Dark chocolate chipsMilk chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips

Step-By-Step Guide

Step 1: In a mixing bowl, combine the creamy almond butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir until smooth and well combined. If the almond butter is too thick, you can microwave it for a few seconds to soften it slightly.

Step 2: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate with the coconut oil. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth.

Step 3: Line a mini muffin tin with paper or silicone liners. Spoon a small amount of melted chocolate into the bottom of each liner, spreading it evenly to coat the bottom and sides. Place a spoonful of the almond butter filling into each cup, pressing it down slightly to flatten. Pour the remaining melted chocolate over the almond butter filling, covering it completely and smoothing the top with a spoon or spatula.

Step 4: Place the muffin tin in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or until the almond butter cups are firm and set. Once chilled, remove the almond butter cups from the muffin tin and peel away the paper or silicone liners. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • For a sweeter filling, you can increase the amount of powdered sugar to suit your taste preferences.
  • Feel free to customize the almond butter cups by adding chopped nuts, dried fruit, or a sprinkle of sea salt on top for extra flavor and texture.
  • To make the process even easier, you can use store-bought almond butter instead of making your own.
