Almond Butter Cups
A rich almond butter filling wrapped in dark chocolate for a healthy candy treat.
Prep Time 35 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
- 12 ounces dark chocolate (60-72% cacao), chopped
- 1 cup natural creamy almond butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon fine grain salt
- Sea salt for sprinkling
Line 24-30 mini muffin tins with paper liners and set aside.
Melt 2/3 of the chocolate in a double boiler until smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining chocolate a little at a time until completely melted, placing over the double boiler again if necessary.
Spoon a small amount of chocolate in the bottom of each muffin liner, spreading it about halfway up the sides.
In a medium bowl, mix almond butter, honey, powdered sugar, vanilla, and 1/4 teaspoon salt until smooth. Scoop out about a teaspoon of filling and roll it between the palms of your hands until it forms a ball. Place the balls in the center of each chocolate covered paper liner.
Spoon enough chocolate over the top of each almond butter ball to completely cover it and create a smooth top. Place a small pinch of sea salt on top of each one and place in the refrigerator to set. Once set store the cups in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Allow them to come to room temperature for a few minutes before eating.
