Chocolaaaaaaate! A way to Stella’s heart. If you want me to do anything for you, please make me these chocolate cups first. I will love, appreciate and respect you forever. I will even rub your feet. Even if they’re smelly.
Smelly cat, smelly cat, what are they feeeding yoooou?
Speaking of, remember the kitten I found on the street, adopted and touched only with gloves because I was afraid I will get worms? How can you not? Did you not write about it in your bullet journal? “Highlight of the week: Stella adopted a kitten.”
I really need to stop being so humble. But, seriously, what is a bullet journal?
Anyway, that cat is now big, living in my dad’s yard and it makes me so happy. I don’t know where I was going with this super entertaining story. I guess you had to be there.
Show me the chocolate. I’ve told you before, I’m not a huge fan of chocolate and I’m dead to you. But in my defense, it’s not cheesecake or cake. However, I have been addicted to these cups for probably 3 months now.
They’re delicious, they’re super rich (and famous) and you can make them with a few ingredients in 10 minutes.
You’ll need some nut butter, any type you like. I’ve tried these with natural peanut butter, almond butter and are you ready: walnut butter! BAM. I found this local store that offers walnut butter and I’m not going back to anything else. Unless they stop offering it of course. Then I’ll have to cry for a few days and go beg peanut butter on my knees to take me back. #backtoreality
The other thing you’ll need is chocolate, I used 85
A delicious and healthy chocolate dessert that you can make in 15 minutes with a few ingredients! These chocolate cups are perfect as a snack, whenever you have chocolate cravings. They’re vegan, paleo and gluten-free!
- 3 Tbsp nut butter
- 1/3 cup dark chocolate, chopped
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp honey / maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp flaxseed
- 4 walnut halves, chopped
- 2 Tbsp coconut flakes / coconut flour
- Melt the chocolate. You’re welcome to use any other method you like for this, but I found for me a modified water bath is the easiest way. Here’s how I did it: I chopped chocolate and put it in a small heat-resistant bowl, then placed the small bowl into a bigger one that is also heat-resistant and has the same height or is higher. Then I boiled water in my electric kettle, poured that water into the bigger bowl, making sure that the bottom of the smaller bowl (where the chocolate is) is covered with water, WITHOUT getting ANY of it into the chocolate/smaller bowl. When you’ve done that, quickly put a lid to cover the bigger bowl and let it rest like this while mixing the rest of the ingredients. After I was done, there were still some unmelted chocolate pieces so I kept stirring for 1-2 minutes: ready!
- While the chocolate is melting, make the nut-butter mix. In a smaller mixing bowl mix the nut butter, coconut oil (melted), honey / maple syrup until very well combined. Add in the walnuts, coconut flakes and cinnamon.
- Combine the nut mixture with the melted chocolate, until everything is covered with chocolate.
- Spoon mixture into silicone muffin cups (fill them half-way). Or if you don’t have muffin cups and form isn’t of importance, place parchment paper on a plate and spoon mixture onto it, making different sized and shaped “chocolate cookies”. Leave in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and enjoy! These keep very well in the fridge for days.
