Salted Caramel Chocolate Cups

There are very few vegan chocolates you can buy easily and often they are quite expensive. These are a real treat and are very easy to make. I had to hide these in the freezer as the temptation to reach for another, and then anther becomes too much! 

I use shop bought chocolate here as raw chocolate needs to be tempered for it to not immediately melt in room temperate. It's a long process taking a minimum of an hour and I'll do a full post on it soon. What I like about these is they are quick to prepare and an easy introduction to vegan chocolate. 

How to make Vegan Salted Caramel Chocolate Cups

Salted Caramel Chocolate Cups 


200g of high quality vegan dark chocolate - minimum 70% cocoa solids. 

1/2 a teaspoon of coconut oil 

2 Tablespoons of Almond Butter

1 Tablespoon of Agave or Maple Syrup

1 Tablespoon of Coconut Milk - from a can - the creamy part at the top. 

1 heaped teaspoon of oats

1 Pinch of Sea salt 

10 Almonds.


Create a double boiler by simmering water in a saucepan and placing a second pan or heat resistant bowl on top of the water. 

Break the chocolate up and melt it in the bowl. 

I have a silicone cupcake tray so there was no need to line it but if your's is metal you will need to insert cupcake holders or baking paper into the tray. 

Pour in 1 spoon of chocolate into the moulds and place the tray in the freezer to cool for at least twenty minutes. 

Make your caramel by warming the coconut oil in a pan. Add the agave and the almond butter and stir continuously to combine. Do not taste this while it's in the pan as it gets really hot. When combined remove from the heat and add a small pinch of salt, the coconut cream and the oats and stir to blend it all together.  It should be a thick paste. 

Remove the tray from the freezer and working quickly spoon a small 1/2 teaspoon amount onto all the chocolate cups and press down the almond into it. Top with the remaining melted chocolate and return to the fridge for at least an hour to set. 


Let me know if you make these?!
