Filling Ingredients

  • 1 Evolved Chocolate Signature Dark bar melted
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • teaspoon peppermint oil
  • 2 tablespoons cold coffee optional
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 crushed candy cane optional

Chocolate Cups

  • 3 Evolved Chocolate Signature Dark bars melted


For the Filling

  • In a medium-size bowl with a rubber spatula, mix together chocolate and maple syrup until it thickens up a bit.
  • Mix in cocoa powder and coconut oil until all lumps of powder are gone.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix again until you get a thick, even mixture.
  • Set aside while preparing the chocolate cups.

For the Chocolate Cups

  • Pour 2 tablespoons of melted chocolate into the bottom of a silicone cupcake liner (this one works best and can be reused).
  • Spread the chocolate around the interior of the cupcake liner by rotating the liner until it's fully covered with chocolate on the inside.
  • Place on a flat surface and transfer to fridge to harden, for at least 20 minutes.
  • Repeat for the remaining cupcake liners.


  • Once hardened, don't remove the chocolate from the liners just yet.
  • Pack 2 tablespoons of the fudge mixture into the bottom of the hardened chocolate cup, lightly packing it down.
  • Pour another tablespoon of melted chocolate over the top, spread to the sides.
  • Be sure to spread that chocolate to the sides as well.
  • Place back in the fridge for at least 20 minutes, or until hardened.
  • Pull out of fridge, peel back wrapper and enjoy!
