Low Cal Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cup

Ack! I’m such a delinquent! I tweeted and instagrammed this all over the place the other night and then left you all hanging!

Yeah, that would be a homemade dark chocolate almond butter cup. Did I mention it’s rich and decadent?

And low cal? 

I wouldn’t toy with you about something like this . . . ;)

Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cup

Serves one

For the chocolate shell:

2 T. Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder

1 T. unsweetened vanilla almond milk (any milk would probably work)

1 T. sugar free maple syrup (or agave or regular syrup would probably work, too!)

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until very smooth–no cocoa lumps allowed!!!

Spray a small ramekin with non-stick cooking spray and spoon about half of the chocolate mixture on top. Top with a tablespoon of almond butter, then the rest of the chocolate mixture. Freeze for at least one hour until set. <–I get that this instruction is incredibly challenging and unfair. Do yourself a favor and make this when you’re cooking dinner so it’s ready for you when that 8:30 PM sweet tooth kicks in. Don’t look at me like that. You know exactly what I mean. 

That’ll set you back about 120 calories. 

Go forth and make almond butter cups, my friends!!!

    What is the fat content in this recipe. I have to really watch my fat because of Pancreas problems. Thank you for your input…

    • Hi Bev! I’m not sure–it would be just the fat from your almond butter, so if you look at the nutritional stats on the jar, you should be able to find it. :)


  2. Sweet Jesus. I’m going to eat one of these every day once I’m off work for the summer. Why do you not have your own cooking show yet?
