Dark Chocolate Almond Cups

Halloween's got me surrounded by free candy and I am not likin it! Anyone else trying to cut their sugar intake? Welp, we gotta get creative.  I tried making my own Reese's cups since I'm in love with them & I needed a healthier version.  I'm so happy I did! Check it out, let me know what you think?  


Time: 30 mins 


  • 2 cups unsweetened cacao 
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut oil 
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar  
  • 1 cup almond or peanut butter  
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract  


  1. Melt the coconut oil then mix it with the cacao until its dissolved. 
  2. Add in the agave, sea salt, and vanilla extract. 
  3. Pour about 1.5 tablespoons of the mixture into muffin tins lined with cupcake liners.  
  4. Refrigerate the mixture for 2-3 minutes. 
  5. Microwave the almond butter for 1 min so it melts.  
  6. Pour 1 tablespoon of the almond butter into the cups on top of the chocolate mixture.  
  7. Pour enough of the remaining chocolate mixture over the almond butter to cover it.  
  8. Refrigerate for 15-20 mins until the "Reese's" harden. Enjoy!
