These Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups are a healthy version of Reese’s, a reeses copy cat recipe with almond butter if you will. They’re easy to make at home, are delicious and also gluten-free + vegan! This homemade Paleo Almond Butter Cups recipe is fun to make AND eat with your family! 




  1. Fill a mini muffin pan with mini parchment paper liners and set aside.
  2. Using a double-boiler, melt the chocolate chips until creamy and completely melted. Then remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. Spoon 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate into each mini liner and swirl around until the bottom of the liner and the sides are completely coated in chocolate.
  4. Set the mini muffin pan with chocolate liners into the freezer for 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.
  5. While the chocolate sets prepare your almond butter filling by mixing together the almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon and sea salt. Then set aside until the chocolate cups come out of the freezer.
  6. After removing the muffin pan from the freezer roll 1 teaspoon of the almond butter filling into a ball between your hands and slightly flatten. Place the flattened almond butter ball into a chocolate liner and repeat for all the chocolate cups.
  7. Now that the chocolate cups are filled with almond butter filling cover the tops of each cup with more melted chocolate until you can’t see the almond butter.
  8. If desired, sprinkle the tops with flakey sea salt and place the muffin pan into the freezer once more for at least 10 minutes. Store the finished almond butter cups the fridge or if your house is cool enough, in your pantry and enjoy!


*Almond Butter Cups will last in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
