12 cups
Paleo Salted Caramel Chocolate Cups


Chocolate layer:
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 tbsp coconut oil
Caramel layer:
1/2 cup dates soaked 1-2 hours
Chopped and remove pits
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. Melt the chocolate chips + the coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until completely melted.
  2. Line a mini cupcake tin with liners.
  3. Pour half of the chocolate into the cups, filling about 1/3 of the way.
  4. Put in the freezer for about 30 minutes
  5. Pit and chop your dates and add into a food processor with the other ingredients and purée. I always soak the dates for at least an hour because they’re easier to purée!
  6. Then add this on top of the semi frozen chocolate layer.
  7. Add the additional chocolate on top (you might need to melt it again)
  8. Sprinkle salt on top
  9. Place back in the freezer for about an hour, until they’re completely frozen!
  10. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months in an airtight container or in the fridge for 5 days
