Primal Chocolate Almond Butter Cup

Primal Chocolate Almond Butter Cup: if you consider dark chocolate primal :)

There is no question that my biggest weakness is chocolate. Sure it was difficult to give up ice cream, pasta and bread at first, but now I really don't crave those things at all. But I do crave dark chocolate from time to time. And I have decided that life is just so much better with a square of dark chocolate here and there- so I'm not giving it up!

Anyways, here is a fun recipe I put together this afternoon- hope you like it as much as I do!!

  1. 2 ounces dark chocolate (at least 70%)
  2. a couple tablespoons natural (non-sweetened) almond butter
  3. a sprinkling of trail mix, if desired

  1. Melt dark chocolate in a double broiler (this means simply to set a saucepan over another saucepan with simmering water in the bottom one. The top pot should contain chocolate only- no water)
  2. Meanwhile, butter a mini muffin tray
  3. Pour chocolate one third of the way up each muffin container
  4. Spoon a dab of almond butter into the center of each container
  5. Sprinkle some trail mix on top
  6. Drizzle more chocolate over the top, to encompass the candy
  7. Chill in fridge til set (a couple hours)
  8. Yummm
