Because. Halloween.

October 31, 2017

Because who doesn’t like halloween candy? Especially when it’s homemade!

These caramel cups are really easy to make and only require a few ingredients. They are also easy to customize- I made a pumpkin peanut butter version earlier in the week.

 

Homemade Caramel Cups

Caramel:

5-6 medjool dates, pitted

water, as needed

Chocolate:

1/2 c coconut oil

3 T cocoa powder

1/4 c maple syrup

salt, for sprinkling on top

Method:

Add pitted dates to hot water and allow to soak for at least 15 min. Drain water and add to a food processor. Process until smooth, adding a couple spoonfuls of water as needed.

Melt coconut oil over medium low heat. Stir in the cocoa powder and maples syrup.

Fill small liners 1/3 of the way full of chocolate. Arrange on a plate and freeze for 15-20 min until firm. Add a layer of caramel, and top with more chocolate to fully cover. Sprinkle with salt. Freeze again until firm.

Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
