Chocolate Almond Cups
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
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!
