Easy Paleo Reese's™ Cups
Updated March 8, 2017
bag (10 oz) dark chocolate chips
cup raw almond butter (or peanut butter, if not strict Paleo)
cup raw unfiltered honey
teaspoon vanilla (or caviar from 1 scraped vanilla bean)
tablespoon sea salt flakes (like Maldon™)
Special equipment: parchment or silicone cupcake liners
Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners. Set aside.
In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips in 30-second bursts, stirring between, until smooth. Drizzle 2-3 teaspoons of chocolate into the bottom of each cup, just enough to cover the bottom with chocolate.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix together almond butter, honey and vanilla. Drop 1 heaping tablespoon into the center of each chocolate-filled cup.
Rap muffin tin against table several times to even out the almond butter filling. Cover with chocolate, sprinkle with sea salt. Allow chocolate to harden before serving. Refrigerate for 10-20 minutes to speed up the hardening process, if desired.
- For strict paleo eaters, use grain-sweetened or stevia-sweetened chocolate chips. Or substitute stevia-sweetened carob chips, if desired.
