I recently made these Chocolate Almond Butter Cups, and I am so excited to be sharing the recipe with you guys! They are a healthier twist on traditional chocolate peanut butter cups, and let me tell you, they taste amazing. They are just sweet enough to cure any sugar craving, but have zero refined sugar in them (which I love).
Aside from the fact that they are just plain delicious, this recipe also has some other great selling points: First, you can make and store these cups in the freezer for up to a month, making them the perfect last-minute dessert to keep on hand. Second, they require no actual baking — And it is almost impossible to mess them up, so anyone can make these! Finally, the recipe is paleo, gluten free and can easily be done dairy free and vegan by using vegan chocolate chips (like I did) — Making the recipe a great option to bring to a party, because it complies with a lot of different dietary restrictions.
Overall, this recipe was a big win! I feel so much better keeping treats like this in my house because I know that I’m feeding my family a dessert that is not processed, or packed with artificial flavors and sugar.
I hope you guys like these as much as I do! Please let me know if you try making them, and how they turn out for you!
