Woohoo it’s the last weekend until Christmas and I hope you are all excited? I cannot wait and the celebrations are starting this weekend. On Saturday we are spending the day in Florence to do some Christmas shopping and visit the German/Italian Christmas market!

Bratwurst and Bratkarttofeln get in my belly!

Oh and of course there will be plenty mulled wine to wash it all down with πŸ™‚

What are your plans this weekend? If you have any festive parties planned then you need to make these Dark Chocolate Almond Butter CupsΒ or maybe you’re having a cozy weekend in with the family? Then you still have to make these, they are simple and oh so more-ish.

These almond butter cups only have 3 ingredients (one being salt) and are ridiculously easy to make, very much like myΒ Chocolate Peanut Butter PumpkinsΒ that I made for Halloween.

All I do is melt 100g of good quality dark chocolate in a bowl on top of simmering pot of water and spoon it into 20 mini muffin/cupcake cases making sure to draw the chocolate up the sides. The cups are then put in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden.

Then I spoon in some almond butter. I make my own almond butter by blitzing almonds in the food processor (nothing else) until a smooth almond butter forms. This only takes around 15-20 minutes and it’s 100% pure almond butter. I much prefer to make my own this way and it’s SO much cheaper!

The cups are then put back in the freezer for another 10 minutes. I then melt the remaining 100g of chocolate in the same bowl and spoon it over the almond butter filled cups. I then put them back in the freezer one last time for around 10-15 minutes.

    I’ve never had almond butter, but this looks super delish! I haven’t worked with chocolate in ages (I think it’s the January-healthy-lull). Gotta fix that soon!
