As promised I’m back with a Halloween treat for all you out there!  It’s so hard to believe Halloween is Monday.  I don’t know about you, but I’m amazed how quickly October flew by!  I’ve been thinking about a Paleo Halloween treat for Halloween since last month!  Reese’s cups are a favorite of my husband so these were really inspired by him.  I wanted to create something that was Paleo friendly so we could avoid having those Reese’s cup around the house which are packed with all things non-paleo and not good for us.  I then remembered that I got these Halloween tray’sfrom Michael’s last year as they were clearing out of all of their Halloween products.  I knew they would come in handy this year!  They are actually tray’s for chocolate dipped oreo’s but I won’t be using them for that so why not these chocolate almond cups!  There are several ways you can make these that don’t involve this exact tray.  You can use the candy molds that actually look like Reese’s cupsor you could even use the bottom of a silicone muffin pan.  These don’t take long and you only need two things…chocolate and almond butter!  Oh, and a mold.  But seriously there is no excuse to not have a Paleo Halloween treat in your house.  In my case a Halloween treat for the hubby and kids that didn’t involve a bag of not so great Halloween candy from the local Target.  Oh, and the reason for the condensation on these treats is because I had to photograph them fast!  I had three people in the background waiting patiently to try them.  They didn’t last too long either!

I hope everyone enjoys these treats and remember they aren’t just for Halloween either.  Have a safe and Happy Halloween and I’ll see you back here next week for some more Paleo fun recipes.

Chocolate Almond Cups

1 cup (about 4 bars) Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Bars (or 72% dark chocolate)

1/2 cup almond butter

Instructions:

Over very low heat, melt chocolate in a double broiler.  Or you can heat the chocolate in the microwave until melted.

With clean, unused paint brush, paint chocolate into candy molds.

Place in freezer for 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.  After 10 minutes if the chocolate hasn’t set place back into freezer until it is sold.

Fill hardened chocolate molds with almond butter.

Carefully fill in the top of the mold, over almond butter, with additional chocolate.

Place in freezer for 10 to 20 minutes until completely hardened.

Carefully pop candy out of their molds and serve.  Enjoy!

Happy Halloween!

    I’ve been coveting these for days. It caused me to lazily cave to buying some Reece’s cups, but I know I really need to learn to make this friendlier treat. I’m going to pin this so I can remember next time in a baking mood to give it a whirl. First, I need to get a silicon mold.

    These look wonderful! And this is probably a dumb question…. but, is almond butter like peanut butter? In the same section of the store or do you have to make it? Thanks!

    Hi Suzanne,

    No such thing as a dumb question. :) Yes, almond butter should be on the aisle with the peanut butter. It’s basically the same but of course using almond butter.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  7. […] Chocolate Almond Cups: This is a Halloween tricked out Paleo version of  Reese’s cups with almonds butter instead of peanut butter. If you want the spooky look you will need to find a Halloween mold usually available at Michaels or similar local places. They will still be irresistible even without the pumpkin faces. […]
