  • i/4

  • one/ii
    medjool dates, pitted*

  • 1/3
    creamy peanut butter (the natural, drippy sort)

For the cups

  • 15
    nighttime chocolate, chopped

  • two
    coconut crude oil

  • flaky sea common salt


  1. Line a muffin can amongst newspaper liners. Set aside.

  2. Combine pecans, cashews, almonds, cinnamon, as well as table salt inwards a food processor. Pulse until mixture is a rattling fine crumb. Add the dates in addition to peanut butter together with blend until mixture forms a "dough". You may demand to stir as well as scrape downward the sides a few times during this process. Form mixture into 12 small "patties" that will correspond in the bottom of your muffin tins, leaving a piddling extra infinite at the sides.

  3. Melt chocolate over a double boiler, or in the microwave in 30 moment increments. Make sure you melt it really carefully, as chocolate can seize up if overheated inward a affair of seconds! I normally melt mine, stirring constantly over a double boiler, until entirely a few chunks remain, then I take it from the estrus too go on stirring until completely melted. Once chocolate is melted, stir in the kokosnoot crude oil until melted.

  4. Spoon a tablespoon just about of chocolate into the bottom of each muffin tin. Tap the can on the counter to make sure chocolate is inward an fifty-fifty layer. Place inward the fridge or freezer for a few minutes until chocolate has hardened.

  5. Once hardened, place the peanut butter "patties" inwards each tin, and spoon another ii-3 tablespoons of melted chocolate over each, until the filling is covered. Sprinkle alongside flaky ocean table salt at once earlier they harden. Chill inward the fridge until hardened, or in the freezer if you lot're impatient like me! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*Medjool dates work best in this recipe. Mine were super fresh and juicy, merely if yours look dry out, soak them for ten minutes inward warm H2O together with and then drain them real good before blending.

*These go on for upwards to two weeks inward the refrigerator, together with two-iii months inwards the freezer!

*This is the flaky bounding main common salt I function in addition to dear!
