Servings 15 pieces


  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup cocoa butter (melted) You will need to estimate if in big chunks. I used 1 ½ of approx 1" chunks
  • 2 tsp date nectar/syrup can substitute honey - add a little more for a sweeter candy
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • pinch sea salt


  1. Melt cocoa butter in small sauce pan over low heat until it is just melted - don't let it start to simmer

  2. Set melted cocoa butter aside a few minutes to cool a little - you don't want it to be so hot it starts to cook the other ingredients, but don't let it start to harden back up

  3. Add almond butter, date nectar/syrup, vanilla and melted cocoa butter to medium mixing bowl

  4. Whisk to combine

  5. Add unsweetened cocoa powder and salt

  6. Whisk until batter is smooth

  7. Spoon into candy molds (if you dont have molds, line a mini-muffin pan with paper baking cups and spoon candy batter into that)

  8. Freeze for at least 30 minutes before removing from molds

  9. Store candy in freezer - it melts fast
