Almond Butter Cups

Peanut butter cups….a gift from the heavens above. Unfortunately, some people are allergic to peanuts! One of these poor souls is one of my best friends, Robert. He is able to eat almond butter, so I decided to make him a close substitute, Almond Butter Cups! They taste great, and are actually healthier than traditional PB Cups. They also are insanely easy to make 😀

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped and melted

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Set time: 25 minutes

Yield: 12 Almond Cups

Combine the first four ingredients, and mix until fully combined. Press this mixture into the bottom of a mini-cupcake tray, filing each cup 1/2 full. Don’t worry about spraying the tins, the oil from the almond butter will allow the cups to pop out once they are set. Place the trays in the fridge for about 5 minutes, Remove, and pour the melted chocolate over the top of the almond mixture, filling each cup to the top. Sprinkle a bit of sea salt onto the top of each cup, then place back in the freezer for another 20 minutes. Once set, use a sharp knife to pop the cups out of the cupcake tray. Let the cups sit out for about 5 minutes before serving, to allow the chocolate to soften slightly.
