Caramel Cookie Chocolate Cups


1 cup Almond Flour

2 tbsp Maple Syrup

1/4 cup Coconut Oil (divided)

3/4 cup Pitted Dates (soaked in hot water for at least 10 minutes)

2 tbsp All Natural Peanut Butter

1/8 tsp Sea Salt

2 tbsp Water (reserved from soaking the dates; plus more if needed)

4 1/3 oz Dark Chocolate

Line a muffin tray with paper baking cups and set aside.

Add the almond flour, maple syrup, and 3/4 of the coconut oil to a food processor. Blend until a soft, cookie dough-like texture forms. Divide the dough evenly between baking cups and press it into an even layer at the bottom of each baking cup. (Use damp fingers if the dough is too sticky.) Transfer to the freezer for at least 15 minutes or until firm.

Meanwhile, rinse out the bowl of the food processor. Add the soaked dates, peanut butter, salt, and reserved date water and blend until mostly smooth, scraping down the sides of the food processor when needed. Add one to two additional tablespoons of the date water if needed. The consistency of the date caramel sauce should be thick, mostly smooth, and not liquidy.

Using a spoon or damp fingers, add the date caramel sauce in an even layer to the top of the almond cookie layer. Place in the freezer for at least 15 minutes or until chilled.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate and the remaining coconut oil in a small bowl in 30-second increments in the microwave or by using a double boiler over the stove.

Spoon the melted chocolate over the top of the caramel layer. Place in the freezer for at least 15 minutes or until the chocolate has set then transfer to an airtight container in the fridge or freezer until ready to enjoy.
