Almond Butter Cups
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you're enjoying whatever plans you've made for today and eating lots of yummy treats! Today we made some seriously sweet, awesomely indulgent, surprisingly not TOO bad for you treats for you to share with your valentine, Almond Butter Cups!
Think 'Reese's PB Cups' but made with real ingredients.
This recipe makes about 3 large chocolates each, if you are using a cupcake mold like I did.
Fill bottom and sides of candy molds with chocolate using a butter knife (the texture will be pretty thick). I used silicone cupcake molds for bigger chocolates, but you could really use any size as long as you have enough room in the molds for the almond butter filling as well.
Once molds have been coated in chocolate mixture (about a 1/8-1/4 inch thick), pour in heaping teaspoons of the almond butter mixture until the molds are almost all the way full.
Use remaining chocolate mixture to top almond butter mixture and seal the molds.
Freeze for one hour to set, then enjoy!
Looking for a less almond-buttery treat? Sometimes you need chocolate. And I mean JUST chocolate. Mouth-fulls of just chocolate. I usually fill that need with this Simple Fudge Cups recipe. Its simple and great for people who aren't almond butter fans or have nut allergies!
