Chocolate Almond Cups

I saw this idea online and I immediately had to give it a try. Luckily I had both ingredients at home. For this you will need dark chocolate of 65 percent cacao or higher, almond butter ( I used the crunchy kind), a kitchen brush and a silicone mini cupcake or square bite size tray. This is such a great dessert or even a snack when you want to have a treat. Give it a try!

Melt the chocolate in sauce pan on medium low.

Brush the chocolate onto each cupcake mold. Be generous and make sure enough chocolate is on all sides.

Place in freezer for 10 minutes. Than take it out and place a teaspoon of almond butter or just fill up each individual cup. Cover by brushing on more melted chocolate to completely seal the almond butter.

Place back in freezer for another 15-20 minutes. I like to leave them in there and eat them straight from the freezer.

It’s Not Just Any Almond Butter

Hi, my name is Khania, and I can’t live without almond butter. Now that I got that off my chest, let me tell you about the BEST almond butter I have ever tasted! At first, any time I would eat almond butter was because I knew it was better than peanut butter and I would almost force myself to eat it. Until I found this brand. Now I actually enjoy my almond butter and usually have it in my protein shakes. So good you guys have to give it a try!

I usually make my protein shakes with 4 oz. almond milk, 4 oz. water, vanilla protein powder, a tbs of almond butter and strawberries. If I’m having it after a long run or intense cardio session I switch to chocolate milk and add half a banana. So good!

Enjoy your holiday weekend everyone! For those doing the 30 day challenge with me, take tomorrow off but please don’t forget about all the hard work you’ve done so far. Indulge with moderation!! I will be running 10 miles with Jungle Fitness so I can have my piece of pie. 🙂
