Mini Almond Butter Fudge Cups

Hello mini almond butter fudge cups – little dream bites of lasting energy, and delicious flavor. The flavor of the almond butter is the star, with the slightest touch of sweetness from the honey and fudge-like creaminess from the chilled coconut oil. They’re so easy to whip up too.

They sound amazing, right? Let’s break them down a little more.

Easy to make – I bring a kid into the kitchen all the time to help whip them up.

Fast – quickly warm the ingredients, and simply pour them in mini muffin liners to chill in the fridge. Want them faster? Pop them in the freezer to chill even quicker.

Delicious – did I mention almond butter, honey and coconut oil? The combination leaves you with a fudge like treat that’s naturally sweetened!

I like to keep them in the fridge to stay chilled until I need them. Left out they would melt a little because of the coconut oil, but chilled it’s a cool treat for any day!

Where are you buying your almond butter from these days? Chucks? Why the cacao chips instead of chocolate?

Hey Liz – I buy it at chucks or Fred Meyers typically. Cacao nibs have no sugar added to them and are pure chocolate flavor which I love!
