These Easy Chocolate Almond Butter Cups are the perfect sweet candy treat when you want something indulgent, yet healthy!  You can make these jumbo sized or small cups depending if you want small bites to snack on or a healthy sized candy cup for dessert!  And guess what?  These are great for gifting! There’s only 3 ingredients, pretty easy to make and super yummy!

We used non-dairy chocolate chips and our favorite Almond Butter and just melted the chocolate with a little oil of choice, like coconut, vegetable or canola. 

Line muffin cups with some of the melted chocolate to line the bottom. Place in freeze for a couple of minutes until set, then scoop some of the almond butter filling on top of the chocolate in the muffin cups. At this time you can also add some almonds if you want the crunch factor!  Then top with more of the melted chocolate and chill until set.  

That’s it! 

Super easy and amazing tasting!  

Making almond butter!

You can use any almond butter to make these or make your own home-made almond butter by using a good food processor or blender.  Just preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spread the almonds across a large, rimmed baking sheet and toast the almonds for 10 minutes, stirring halfway.  Transfer the almonds to a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until creamy.  Once the almond butter is very smooth and creamy , you can even take it up a notch by blending in any add-ins you would like.  Sea salt, vanilla or maple syrup are super yummy!  I’m a huge fan of all! 

Other ideas for cups? 

If you have silicone or mold pans that’s great!  Otherwise, use a mini muffin pan (24 cups) or a regular muffin pan (12 cups) and line with candy or muffin liners.  I spray them with non-cooking spray to help them release easier.  

For other candy ideas, try these Best Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars and these Healthy Coconut Almond Joy Cups!

Hope you enjoy!!
