Ingredients for Nut Butter:
½ cup your favorite unsweetened nut or seed butter
2 teaspoons Lucuma powder, or more to taste
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Ingredients for Chocolate:
¼ cup Cacao powder
⅛ cup coconut oil
1-2 Tablespoons maple syrup
Pinch of sea salt (optional)
- Prepare nut butter: In a small bowl, combine your butter, lucuma, and vanilla extract. Taste and adjust the taste to your liking.
- Prepare chocolate: In a double boiler, on low heat melt down coconut oil. Once melted, remove from heat and whisk in cacao powder, maple syrup, and pinch of sea salt.
- Line a muffin pan with paper or silicone cupcake holders. Fill each cup with 1-2 teaspoons of the chocolate mixture, just enough to cover the bottom of each mold. Place in the refrigerator until the chocolate hardens. Once hardened, dollop about 1 teaspoon of the nut butter mixture into each mold and press lightly to flatten out a little bit but ideally not letting it touch the edges of the mold. Pour chocolate over it until the nut butter is covered completely. Sprinkle with a dash of course sea salt for flavor (optional). Place the muffin pan back in the refrigerator until all chocolate is hardened, about 5-10 minutes.
- Take chocolate cups out of the molds and enjoy! Keep stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
