Raw Almond Joy Cups

My Mom asked me last week, if I could make her some almond butter cups.  I was not going to say no, and in fact I even jazzed up the almond butter cups a bit!  My Mom has always loved Almond Joy Bars, and so I thought, why not make a raw almond butter cup with the same flavors?!

 
I used a coconut butter base for the bottom (which tastes surprisingly like white chocolate) with some coconut stirred in, then topped it off with some home made almond butter, dark chocolate on top of that, and an almond.  They were delicious, and they did taste like Almond Joy candy, only better.  My Mom had a good idea to make almond butter cups this week, and I am glad I listened!
 
 

Raw Almond Joy Cups
Makes 12

White Chocolate:
1/2 cup raw coconut butter, warmed to liquid
liquid stevia to taste
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

about 1/4 cup shredded dried coconut

 Chocolate:1/4 cup
raw cacao powder
1/4 cup raw coconut oil, warmed to liquid
2 Tbsp raw coconut nectar or raw agave nectar
a pinch of sea salt

about a 1/3 cup raw almond butter

12 raw almonds

12 mini sized foil cups (regular peanut butter cup sized, not the tiny and not the regular muffin size)

Whisk together coconut butter, stevia, and vanilla extract until smooth.  Set 12 foil cups out, and fill them 1/3 full with white chocolate.  Sprinkle with a little coconut.  Set in the freezer until hard (about 15 minutes), then place about a heaping tsp of almond butter into the center of each.  To make the dark chocolate, whisk together all ingredients until smooth. Spoon dark chocolate over peanut butter to cover.  Set an almond on top of each one. Set in the freezer until hard, about 15 minutes.  Store in the fridge.

      I got mine at the grocery store. They are called "mini" but are actually in between candy size and muffin size. I bet you can order them online though.

    Thank you so much for sharing all these great recipes! I try to make most of them. The base is in the freezer now. Can't wait to try. My friend reserved 2 of the batch for her to eat! 15 minutes feel like an eternety waiting for your yummy deserts to harden!

      The base did not harden up and all the coconut flakes sank to the bottom. Did I do something wrong? They were still delicious. I will have to make another batch today. Thank you.

      Did you use coconut butter and NOT coconut oil, or fresh coconut? Because that would make a difference. Also, did they stay in the freezer long enough? Mine get super hard when using coconut butter. I hope your next batch works out :).

      I used coconut butter. I thought it was because I used maple syrup instead of the stevia. But my friends turned out the same way and she used stevia. Maybe it has to do with me using silicone cups? I'll try freezing them overnight and turning them upside down. Thank you. They are still delicious though!

      It might have been the maple syrup since it adds more liquid. Mine were quite hard. Maybe it takes longer to chill them in the silicone cups though.
