Chocolate Almond Cups

These chocolate almond cups are so good and so good for you!

I wanted to make something that everyone could eat for a Valentine’s dessert. My oldest doesn’t like peanut butter, pretty much the only thing she doesn’t like. I made these chocolate cups with almond butter instead of peanut butter so she could eat them. By the way, she loved them!! I am sure they would taste amazing with peanut butter in place of the almond butter. You can buy all of the ingredients at your local WalMart.

I used powdered swerve as my main sweetener in this recipe.

I really like Swerve sweeteners. They are my general, go to sweeteners. If you don’t have swerve confectioners you can use a granulated sweetener and grind it in your coffee grinder for this recipe. You can use gentle sweet as well but cut back the amount. I melted some 85% chocolate bars from Aldi and used that as the base for the chocolate almond butter. I melted 2 more for a smear on the top as well. These are really high fat and I didn’t want to just keep adding to. You can use more melted bars on top if you would like.

I used these silicone muffin pans but you can use whatever molds you want.

I liked using these pans mostly because of how simple they are to use. The finished product popped out so easy. You can make 12 of the these that are fairly large. If you are wanting a simple low carb chocolate dessert, a half might be enough for you. You don’t have to use organic cacao powder, it has a lot more vitamins and nutrients than regular cocoa powder. My WalMart carries it on the baking isle in the middle with a bunch of other special ingredients. I think it is worth it to buy it but again, use what you have.
