Ingredients

  • 1 tsp Sea Salt, optional

Instructions

  • Line a muffin tin with 12 paper liners.
  • Place 1/2 cup of almond butter in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.

  • Add a dollop of raspberry jam (about 1 tsp), on top of the almond butter.
  • Add about 1 1/2 tablespoons of melted chocolate on top of the almond butter and jam, then very gently tap the muffin tin to flatten the almond butter cups. Sprinkle flakey sea salt on top of each cup.
  • Chill in the freezer for 10 minutes, or until completely firm.
