Nutbutter Filling

¼ cup nut butter (or sunflower seed butter if allergic)

Method

  1. In a bowl, whisk through the cacao and salt through the melted coconut oil and maple syrup so no clumps are present.
  2. Pour 1tsp of chocolate mixture into mini muffin cases/chocolate molds and place in freezer for 5 minutes or until firm.
  3. Remove from freezer and spoon on ½ tsp. nubutter into the center of each chocolate, place back into freezer if nutbutter is runny.

TIPS

  • Top with sea salt or cacao nibs if desired.
  • Add 2tbs of superfoods to the chocolate mix before freezing to boost nutritional benefits; we recommend mesquite, lucuma, açai or maca for this recipe.
  • These are raw; so serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge. Double the quantities to make into larger cups.
