Peppermint Fudge Cups
These cups are a holiday dream! One bite and you might need to hide these from yourself (there goes the self-control) because they are insanely tasty!
Servings: 6 cups
- 1 Evolved Chocolate Signature Dark bar melted
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
- ⅛ teaspoon peppermint oil
- 2 tablespoons cold coffee optional
- Pinch of salt
- 1 crushed candy cane optional
- 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!
