Silicone Muffin Pan
We used Whittakers Dark Ghana
To sprinkle (optional)
Place the silicone muffin pan in the freezer
Break the chocolate into small chunks and melt with the coconut oil on a very low heat until the mix is smooth. Keep stirring so that it does not stick to the bottom of the saucepan.
Remove the muffin pan from the freezer
Using a spoon, pour a little of the melted chocolate mix into the bottom of each cup in the muffin pan. As it is cold, the mix will solidify slightly into a disc
Drop a tsp of nut butter and a tsp of jam onto the top of each chocolate disc
Top up each cup with melted chocolate until the nut butter and jam are just covered. If you are using the nibs, sprinkle these on. Another option is a little sea salt
Place the pan back in the freezer until the tops have solidified
When you are ready to snack, pop out a section or two. They will be hard at first, but quickly become a bit softer at room temperature
Store in the fridge or freezer.
