Chocolate Sun Butter cups are what happens when I look at food blogs 30 minutes before I go to bed. I dream about them and wake up with a craving so intense I get my butt out of bed and directly to the store for the ingredients a 6 in the morning. I am frequently up by 6 in the morning but I am seldom dressed and out the door for anything at 6 in the morning which tells you how badly I wanted these.
These cups only took about10 minutes to put together and most of that was setting the chocolate in the freezer. I don’t have a microwave so I melted my chocolate chips in the air fryer set on the lowest temperature possible. It took about a minute and a half, stirring occasionally. You could also melt the chocolate chips on the stove with a double boiler.
In interest of full disclosure, I received the Sun Butter I used in this recipe from my friend, Steph, who works at Sun Butter. I have received no compensation for this post. I just really liked the recipe.
Chocolate Sun Butter Cups
Adapted From The Primal Palate Blog
3/4 semi sweet or milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 tsp coconut oil
2 TBS Sun Butter
3/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
Place 6 mini cup cake liners in a mini muffin pan; set aside. In a heat proof container combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave the chips on low power, stirring every 30 second until melted. Fill each mini muffin cup half way with chocolate. Place in the freezer for 5 – 10 minutes to set the chocolate.
Meanwhile, combine the Sun Butter, sugar and vanilla in a small bowl; mix well. When the chocolate has set, divide the Sun Butter mixture over the 6 mini muffin cups. Make sure to spread the Sun Butter mixture to the edges of the chocolate bottom. Use the remaining chocolate mixture to cover the Sun Butter mixture, again make sure you spread the chocolate all the way to the edge. Place in the freezer for another 10 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
