Chocolate and almonds—what could be better a better combo? If you’re looking for an easy-to-make sweet and savory dessert, this is your *tasty* answer.
1 ½ cups of almond butter
½ cup of coconut oil (melted)
¼ cup of raw honey (optional for added sweetness)
Chocolate filling of choice (we use our Double Cacao Clean Cookies)
- In a mixing bowl, stir together almond butter, coconut oil, and honey (optional) until smooth.
- Pour half of the mixture into the bottom layer of a dozen paper baking cups. Place in freezer until firm, roughly 15 minutes.
- Remove from freezer, and pour filling of choice (we used Double Cacao Clean Cookies!) to fill the cups three-quarters full; -cover with remaining mixture.
- Place back into the freezer until solid. Enjoy!
