"Reese's" Almond Butter Cups

Like every recipe we do over here at Kale With Love, this is a classic with a healthy twist. If you are a fan of chocolate, I suggest you read on...


Ingredients:
Makes 12 Almond Butter Cups
Directions:
  • Use muffin liners as if making muffins in a muffin tray.
  • Place 1/2 cup chocolate chips in a bowl placed atop a pot of boiling water. Stir gently. This will melt your chocolate.
  • Distribute a small spoon of melted chocolate in each muffin liner. Use knife to spread evenly.
  • Allow to cool and harden in refrigerator for minimum 15 minutes.
  • Once hardened, scoop 1/2 tablespoon of raw almond butter in the center of each cup.
  • Melt remaining chocolate, and cover each cup completely. Again, lightly use a knife to spread evenly.
  • Optional: place 1 or 2 almonds on top of each cup.
  • Place cups in refrigerator for minimum 30 minutes. Once hardened and cooled, remove muffin liners, and relish in the delicacy of this home-cooked healthy treat. Oh boy almond butter is tasty. Maybe I'll give these out for Halloween this year... Thoughts?
