Almond Butter Fudgy Cups


Almond Butter Fudgy Cups

You have just had dinner and just want that little something? Try these decadent, mouth-watering, almond butter fudgy cups.
Thick, rich and luscious nut butter cups with a salted chocolate, almond butter base topped with an almond butter layer. That’s it. Nothing else. Because what more do you need?
You can keep these babies in the freezer and have a square any time you please. They don’t freeze solid, so are perfectly edible straight out of the freezer.
So I’m thinking snacks/desserts for the next couple of weeks!
Almond butter cups are no bake and quick to make which means you can replicate your favorite store-bought sweet treat at home whenever that chocolate craving strikes. Win!
Out of all the nut butters, almond butter continues to be a staple in my pantry. It’s high in protein, compliments many other ingredients and tastes oh so good. But I’ll admit that the flavors are magical when it’s paired with chocolate – a real flavour bomb.
But don’t worry if you have no almond butter. You can use any nut butter (or seed butter) to make this recipe. Nut butter cups are very easy to make and they don't require anything special except for , a nut butter, coconut oil, cocoa powder, a muffin pan and some paper liners.
So I say skip the Reese’s and whip up this healthier version in just 15 minutes. They are flavour bombs that are luxurious, creamy, sweet and seriously amazing.
Take it from me, one isn’t enough. You will need to stock your freezer with a stash for when that craving hits.
