Honey Vanilla Almond Butter Cups

  • Author: Kelsey


  • 1 ½ cups chocolate chips
  • 2 cups Diamond almonds
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 ½ tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place almonds on a baking sheet and roast for 10-15 minutes or until aromatic.
  • Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute, stir then in 30 second increments, stirring each time until melted.
  • Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners. Scoop about 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate into each liner and use the end of a wooden spoon to swirl the chocolate around and push it about halfway up the sides of the liner. (reserve remaining chocolate)
  • Place the liners in the freezer to harder and get started on the nut butter.
  • Place roasted almonds in a food processor and blend on high for about 10 minutes or until the almond butter is creamy and drippy.
  • Once smooth add salt and pulse again.
  • Pour nut butter into a bowl and add in honey and vanilla and fold together to combine.
  • Once chocolate liners are hardened, add 1 tablespoon of nut butter to each one and spread it about to evenly fill the cup. I scooped 1 tablespoon of the nut butter into my hand and rolled it into a ball then pressed into a little disc to fit in the cup.
  • Top with 1 rounded teaspoon of melted chocolate and spread it to cover the nut butter.  Continue with all of the cups then place them in the freezer again until hardened.
  • You can keep them all in their liners or remove them all from the liners and place in a large ziploc bag or tupperware and store in the fridge or freezer!
