Have any of you made your own chocolate or maybe thought about it? Yes? Then you’ve come to the right place! These Vegan Chocolate Almond Butter Cups are surprisingly easy to make and absolutely delightful in taste..take my word on this! 🙂
I’d been tempted by pictures of homemade vegan chocolates popping up everywhere on my Instagram feed and each one more gorgeous than the other! The big plus point? These are naturally sweetened and you get to control the amount going in there, there are no nasties, you are using only a
few THREE ingredients to make them and they are great for kitchen project with kids!
They are also very adaptable. Keep them plain, put peanut butter instead of almond butter, no jam, lots of nuts and seeds…… You have endless possibilities to play around and make these your own!
The coconut butter is the tricky bit..I haven’t seen it on any supermarket shelf, so you’ll need to order it online. I bought mine from here. Its very easy to use, melts easily and sets really well, unlike coconut oil. And, of course, makes the chocolate super creamy and decadent!
I filled my chocolates with homemade almond butter ( definitely more of this next time) and a teeny bit of raspberry jam to make almond-jelly cups. These were topped with chopped almonds, cocoa nibs and sea salt. I stirred in puffed amaranth, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, salted peanuts in the leftover mixture and let in set in little muffin cups. I have a very very happy family right now, with everyone’s dessert sorted for at least a couple days!! 😉
I’d love to know how these turned out for you. Leave a comment below and share a picture on INSTAGRAM using the hashtag #tashasartisanfoods !
