  • 1 ½ cup dark primal chocolate melted

Crunchy Nut Butter Filling:

  • cup sunbutter could use peanut butter for the classic taste
  • cup maple syrup

Finishing Ingredients

  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 tablespoons sunbutter could use peanut butter for the classic taste


For the Chocolate Cups:

  • Swirl around, covering the entire cavity of the cupcake liner. 
  • Take a wax lined cupcake liner or silicone cupcake liner(this one works best and can be reused!) and spoon 2 tablespoons of melted chocolate into bottom.
  • Turn cup over and shake out any excess chocolate that might “pool” on the bottom.
  • Turn right side up again, and place on a flat surface and transfer to fridge to set up.

Crunchy Nut Butter Instructions:

  • In small stainless steel pot or shallow saucepan, cook your maple syrup on medium high heat for about 5 minutes. This will bubble, steam and be very hot, so be very careful!
  • Using a candy thermometer, cook the syrup until it reaches 300℉(this will look and smell burnt, but don’t panic!
  • Once it reaches 300℉, take off heat and immediately pour in ⅓ cup nut butter, start to mix and fold together with a heat resistant rubber spatula or wooden spoon. This will thicken as you mix.
  • Transfer mixture to a plate or tray and let cool for 30 minutes.

Finishing Instructions:

  • Once cool, break apart and pulse in a food processor until large crumbs form.
  • Add the 4 tablespoons sunbutter to the mixture, and pulse again until a crumbly “dough” look is achieved.
  • Divide evenly among the prepared chocolate cups and pack gently with back of spoon.
  • Let set up in fridge for 15 minutes, then pour melted chocolate over the top, covering the filling and “sealing” the cup.
  • Place in fridge again to set up, peel back the cupcake liner, and enjoy!
