Ingredients 

– 2 bars sugar-free dark chocolate (3.5 oz or 100g in total)
– 3 tablespoons coconut oil 
– 2 tablespoons almond butter or any nut butter you prefer 
– 1 tablespoon powdered erythritol 
– Pinch of salt 
– 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Instructions

  1. Line up 8 small cup papers on a plate.
  2. Break the chocolate bars into pieces and melt in a double boiler, also add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, this will help to keep the chocolate smooth and prevent clotting. (A double boiler also called ‘bain marie’ is a pot of water filled with water heated on the stove, with a smaller pot inserted in the water in which you’ll add the chocolate to melt.)
  3. Once the chocolate is melted, fill up the bottom of the cup papers. Put the plate with the cups in the freezer and let the chocolate harden.
  4. In the meantime prepare the almond butter.
  5. In a small pot, add the almond butter, erythritol, one tablespoon of coconut oil, salt and vanilla extract. Let everything melt together on low heat.
  6. Take the chocolate out of the freezer when it’s not liquid anymore and add the almond butter mixture on top.
  7. Place the cup back in the freezer until they harden.
  8. Add another layer of chocolate on top and place in the freezer or fridge until the cups are firm.
  9. Store them in the fridge to prevent them melting at room temperature.
