Preparation Time: 20 minutes
- 4 oz organic cacao chips
- 1/3 cup organic coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons cacao powder
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- pinch salt
- 1 cup almond or walnuts
- 1 cup dried, unsweetened coconut
- 1/3 cups almond butter, as needed
Slowly melt cacao chips, oil and butter. Add cacao, honey, salt and vanilla, stirring vigorously to temper the mixture. Add nuts and coconut.
Place small candy cups on a sheet tray. You may use larger ones but won’t have as many. Pour in chocolate mixture to cover bottom. Place 1/4-1/2 teaspoon almond butter on top of chocolate mixture. Cover with remaining chocolate mixture. Freeze for 15 minutes or longer. Keep in cool place such as refrigerator.
