Raw Dark Chocolate

Nut Butter Filling

Toppings (optional)

  • Cacao Nibs
  • Coarse Sea Salt


  • Line a mini muffin tin with 16 baking cups and set aside.
  • Whisk together the ingredients for the dark chocolate until smooth. Brush the inside of each baking cup with a thick layer of chocolate. If the chocolate is too thin, let it sit out at room temperature for 10-20 minutes before brushing. Place the chocolate cups in the freezer to harden.
  • Combine the almond butter with sweetener of choice. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of sweetened almond butter into each chocolate cup. Top with remaining chocolate and any optional toppings.
  • Place in the freezer and allow to freeze all the way through - about 30 minutes. Once they are frozen, remove the cupcake wrappers from the chocolate cups and serve.


Serving and Storing - Serve these chocolate cups as soon as the chocolate is completely hardened. Simply release the chocolate cups by using a knife as a lever to pop them out of their molds.  Store in the freezer for up to 2 months. When ready to serve, pull them out 10 minutes earlier to thaw. 
Recipe Tips
  1. Don't over-mix the chocolate; chocolate does not want to be messed with much. Mix it only as much as necessary. 
  2. If your chocolate is too thin to coat the sides of mini muffin molds, let it sit a room temperature until it is thick enough to spread.  
  3. Make sure your chocolate cups are completely frozen before removing them. If they are not, they will start to fall apart.
  4. Don't refrigerate set chocolate. Refrigeration can cause condensation and the chocolate will become wet and lose its flavor. Always store these chocolate almond cups in the freezer.
