Makes 8-10 cups

Ingredients:

Chocolate layer:
100g dark chocolate bar, 80-90%
1-2 tablespoons coconut oil

Cashew Butter layer:
1/2 cup cashew butter (or any nut/ seed butter)
1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
Optional: 1-2 tablespoons sweetener of choice

Cocoa Butter layer:
1/2 cup cocoa butter pieces (food grade- I use the Bulletproof brand)
1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
** Can also use coconut butter rather than cocoa butter.

Instructions:

Before starting,
here’s how I fake a double broiler to melt each layer: https://thetoughcookie.com/basics/making-a-double-boiler-2/

  1. Line a muffin tin with liners (I use silicon liners).

  2. In a double broiler, mix together the chocolate layer ingredients over medium/low heat and stir until melted.

  3. Pour into the muffin liners and shake a little so the chocolate is evenly distributed.

  4. Add to freezer (10 mins) and begin making the cashew butter layer.

  5. In a double broiler, mix together the cashew butter layer ingredients over medium/low heat and stir until melted.

  6. Pour on top of frozen chocolate layer and shake a little so the cashew butter layer is evenly distributed.

  7. Add to freezer (10 mins) and begin making the cocoa butter layer.

  8. In a double broiler, mix together the cocoa butter layer ingredients over medium/low heat and stir until melted.

  9. Pour on top of cashew butter layer and shake a little so the cocoa butter layer is evenly distributed.

  10. Finally, freeze for one hour to set.


    Let cup sit out for 3-5 minutes before indulging.
    ** Store in freezer for up to a month or so!
