Who remembers these chocolate almond butter cups? To this day I still think that they’re my favorite recipe that I’ve created. These are a close second. I love sweet dessert type things. So good. What’s even better is when you can make those sweet dessert type things with nutritious foods! The chocolate pudding in the center of these is a rich dark chocolate. So smooth, so creamy. You’ll go crazy for it. You could even eat it by itself like I may or may not have done with a whole batch of it today. These things happen and sometimes you need to eat a whole bowl of chocolate pudding. Other times you’ll need to pair it with almond cups and cashew cream. I recommend the second option, of course. But you can do whatever your heart desires.
Whatever you choose, I can guarantee three things.
Almonds. Chocolate. Happiness.
