When I saw a recipe for these online, I kind of got scared and curious all at once. They looked so good, but the recipe seemed so intimidating…. but I tried it, tweaked it, made it mine and love it! My favorite part is the grains of salt when I bite into the treat. But you decide for yourself! And no, these are not difficult to make. But yes, they look pretty fancy!
Salty Sweet Almond Treats
Coarse Sea Salt
Line six muffin cups with paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray. In saucepan, put 1/4 cup coconut oil. 1/2 cup almond butter, 1 tablespoon honey and a pinch of coarse sea salt. Let it all melt. Put 2 tablespoons of this mixture in each muffin cup; keep the rest of the almond mixture. Place muffin pan in freezer for at least 10 minutes.
In saucepan, put 6 tablespoons coconut oil. 7 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa, 2 tablespoons honey and a pinch of coarse sea salt. Let it all melt. Place this chocolate mixture on top of the almond layer in the muffin cups. Place muffin pan in freezer again for at least 10 minutes.
If necessary, reheat/remelt the rest of the almond mixture and divide it between the six cups once the chocolate layer has hardened. Sprinkle some coarse sea salt on top and freeze once more until solid, at least 30 minutes.
Store in freezer or regrigerator.
