Kitchen Equipment Needed

  • Mixing bowl
  • Muffin tin
  • Parchment paper cups
  • Microwave-safe bowl or double boiler

Tips and Shortcuts

  • Quick Chocolate Melting: If you’re short on time, use the microwave to melt the chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring in between until smooth.
  • Runny Nut Butter: If your nut butter is too thick, microwave it for a few seconds to achieve a runnier consistency, making it easier to mix.
  • Batch Prep: Make a double batch and store the extras in the freezer for a quick treat anytime.

Recipe Swaps and Variations

  • Nut Butter Variations: Swap almond butter for peanut butter, cashew butter, or any other nut butter you prefer.
  • Sweetener Alternatives: Replace maple syrup with agave syrup, honey (if not vegan), or date syrup.
