  1. To make the chocolate, mix together the coconut oil, cocoa butter, maple syrup, cacao powder, vanilla, and salt in a bowl using a whisk. 

  2. Add about 2 teaspoons of the melted chocolate mix to each of 9 cupcake forms. Refrigerate or freeze for 10 minutes. 

  3. Add a little more than 1  teaspoon nut butter to each form.

  4. Cover with more chocolate, sprinkle a little sea alt on top, and refrigerate or freeze for another 20 minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

*Note from Veggie Inspired: These cups are decadent and rich. You may want to make them in mini cupcake forms, using less ingredients in each form, obviously. My kids were satisfied with 1/2 of a big cup each.
