Raw Chocolate Cups

gluten-free. dairy-free. soy-free. vegan. raw.

Raw Chocolate Cups are easy to make. Super easy. And relatively quick. Will need high speed blender, muffin tin, and muffin tin liners.

This is the fun part; can make many varieties. My favorite is peanut butter and dates with cacao nibs, and the two in this recipe. Unfortunately, I was out of dates. Otherwise, would have included. Maybe a future post?

Included is a recipe for almond flour, cacao powder, and maple syrup base with top layer of chocolate, and cashew flour, cacao nibs, and maple syrup with top layer of chocolate. Makes a total of six.

Delicious snack to satisfy any chocolate cravings.


For Cashew Cacao Nib: Base: 1/4 c. cashews. 1 T. maple syrup. 1/2 T. cacao nibs.

For Almond Cacao Powder: Base: 1/4 c. almonds. 1 T. maple syrup. 1/2 T. cacao syrup. 2 dashes salt.

Topping: (makes enough for both) 3 T. coconut oil. 3 T. cacao powder. 1.5 T. maple syrup.


  1. Line muffin tins with muffin cup holders. Set aside.
  2. In high speed blender/food processor, grind cashews into a fine flour. Add syrup and blend to combine. Should have dough-like consistency. Add cacao nibs and blend on low to incorporate.
  3. Divide mixture equally into three muffin holders. Press into base.
  4. Using same blender/processor, grind almonds, along with cacao powder added, into a fine flour. Pour in maple syrup and add two dashes salt. Blend well to combine. Should have dough-like consistency as well.
  5. Divide mixture equally into three muffin holders. Press into base. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  6. To make chocolate topping, melt coconut oil over stove eye on low, if not already melted. Add cacao powder and maple syrup. Stir well.
  7. Spoon chocolate sauce equally over six cups. Place in freezer for 5-10 minutes to harden. Once solid, ready to consume.

Note: Store in freezer for more solid topping or in refrigerator for softer topping. I prefer to store in fridge. Also, do not keep out too long as they will melt.
