Nut Butter Cups
My indulgent, nutty treat is simple to make and looks great. At our house, we use all-natural ingredients for them. —Courtney Stultz, Weir, Kansas
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling
- 1 cup unblanched almonds
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 1 cup creamy cashew butter or peanut butter
- 1/2 cup baking cocoa
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 2 teaspoons honey
- Chopped almonds, optional
- Pulse almonds and dates in a food processor until mixture starts to hold together when pressed. Spoon nut mixture into paper-lined muffin cups; press into bottom.

Refrigerate, covered, until chocolate is set, about 1 hour.

These treats are SCRUMPTIOUS! I made them on 2/15/18. I doubled the amount of creamy peanut butter, cocoa, coconut oil and honey in this recipe and got 17 cups out of this recipe!
