Three easy chocolate cup recipes

The holidays are around the corner, and that means it’s time for treats galore . . . treats for parties, neighbor gifts, or just to eat before you stop eating sweets for a New Year’s resolution.

Chocolate Cups Recipes

These chocolate cups are one of my go-tos because they are so easy, so cute, and sooooo yummy. I love coming up with different variations, and today I wanted to share three of my favorite.

Before you start, you’re going to need a candy cup mold. If you go with a silicone mold, you won’t need to use candy liners. For other types of containers where you worry that it might stick, go for the liners.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Cups

Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Cups

  • Peanut butter chips

Melt down chocolate. Add orange extract to taste. If the extract makes the chocolate dry up, add a little bit of oil to liquify. Add almonds and coconut to chocolate until it reaches desired consistency. Scoop into cupcake liners. Put in refrigerator to harden.
