How To Make Caramel Cookie Dough Cups

This salty-sweet chocolate deal with comes collectively in three components…

Grain-Free Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough

I’ve loads of cookie dough recipes (as a result of howdy magical meals) however I all the time come again to this almond flour variation as a result of its easy, it has the right about-to-be-baked-cookie texture, it’s naturally vegan and paleo pleasant, and one batch makes simply the correct quantity to have some additional for snacking when you assemble your cups.

For the nut or seed butter, I want almond butter or sunflower seed butter. And for the chocolate folded in, I like to recommend chopping up a bar of darkish chocolate fairly finely so that you get a lot of little bits of chocolate in each chew. I used Hu’s Easy Darkish Chocolate bar as a result of 1) it’s my favourite chocolate 2) it’s the very best chocolate and three) I all the time have Easy bars readily available as a result of they’re my go-to Hu selection for baking. However their Salty and even certainly one of their crammed bars can be yummy right here too!

Simple Wholesome Vegan Salted Caramel

Salted caramel, however no range or stirring or sugar required. All you want for this simple dairy-free date caramel is medjool dates, canned coconut milk, vanilla, and salt. Plus a bit mixing endurance to ensure it comes out silky easy. You will have to cease and scrape down the perimeters of the blender a number of occasions, and add extra coconut milk as wanted to get the thickest however (largely) chunk-free consistency.

Medjool date hack: microwave the dates for 15-20 seconds earlier than mixing to melt them for simpler mixing!

Darkish Chocolate Coating

I don’t simply adore Hu chocolate for its taste and impeccable elements, I additionally adore its really excellent melted consistency that makes any form of sweet coating easy and snappy and so easy. It’s completely pourable and units flawlessly, whether or not you soften extra Easy bars for coating or use Gems you can be amazed.

I personally made mini cups, however for those who go for full dimension (there can be sufficient cookie dough and caramel for both!) it’s possible you’ll have to soften further chocolate to cowl all of the gooey goodness inside.
