Servings: 6 cups


Chocolate Cup Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cup dark chocolate melted

Nougat Ingredients:

  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup water
  • .25 ounce powdered gelatin 1 packet
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup water


For the Chocolate Cup:

  • 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.
  • Swirl around, covering the entire cavity of the cupcake liner.
  • 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.

For the Nougat:

  • In a small saucepan, bring the maple syrup and ½ cup of water to a boil on medium-high heat.
  • While it is heating, mix together the gelatin and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl, set aside.
  • Using a candy thermometer, check the maple syrup very often and pull off of the heat when it reaches 240℉.
  • With a wire whisk, mix in the gelatin/water mixture until it has melted completely into the hot syrup.
  • Pour into a mixer, fitted with a whip attachment(this is the ONLY attachment that will work here)
  • Whip mixture on high speed for about 5-10 minutes, this will get light in color and start to triple in size.
  • At this point, with mixer still on high, add coconut flour and ¼ cup water, slowly.
  • Keep whipping until a “watery” marshmallow consistency is achieved.
  • Spoon or pipe a small amount of the marshmallow mixture into the bottom of each chocolate cup(about 1” tall) and set aside.
  • 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!
