Equipment

  • Double boiler or sauce pan and heat safe bowl
  • Muffin tins with liners
  • High speed blender or food processor

Ingredients
 

Chocolate Coating

  • 1 cup vegan dark chocolate chips ($1.34)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil ($0.12)

Salted Caramel Filling

  • 6 whole Medjool dates, pitted & soaked ($0.86)
  • 2 tbsp coconut manna, melted ($0.38)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup ($0.15)
  • 1 tbsp coconut milk ($0.03)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract ($0.21)
  • A pinch of salt ($0.01)

Instructions
 

Chocolate Coating

  • To begin, line a muffin tin with paper cups (12 in total). Then, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a double boiler.
  • Once melted, spoon 1 tsp of chocolate mixture into the lined muffin tins. Note: smear a little chocolate up the sides of the muffin cups with your spoon to fully encapsulate the caramel filling. Set the muffin tin and the rest of the melted chocolate aside while you prepare the caramel.

Salted Caramel Filling

  • For the salted caramel, drain the soaked dates and transfer to a high-speed blender or food processor. Add in the rest of the caramel ingredients, and combine on high until you achieve a smooth consistency. You will have to stop a few times to scrape down the sides.
  • Once smooth, divide caramel on top of the chocolate bottom layer. Spoon the rest of the melted chocolate evenly over the caramel filling.
  • Place muffin tin in your freezer for 15-20 minutes, or until the chocolate hardens. These cups are best kept in the fridge, although they will last 5-6 days at room temperature.

Notes

  • For the smoothest caramel results, use a high-speed blender like the Vitamix.
  • It's also best to soak the dates overnight in room temperature water, or for a minimum of 1 hour in boiling water.
