Everybody loves a good peanut butter cup but have you tried an almond butter cup? Let’s say it’s the peanut versions bigger sister and she’s pretty delicious! Especially, if you like me, top it with some crunchy almond slivers for some good texture.

This classic treat, that I fell in love with when we visited the US a while back for a wedding, is actually very easy to make yourself. Which is lucky for me because there are, sadly, no vegan versions of them to buy here in Sweden.

All you need to make your own though is some chocolate, I use dark chocolate, some coconut oil and in this case almond butter. But you could just as well use any nut butter you enjoy and want to encase in chocolate. I’d say that’s every nut butter ever made in my case, ha! Then there’s the optional crunchy or salty topping and you’re good to go (to butter cup heaven) as you’ll see down below.

If you are looking for some more chocolate-y treats check out this crunchy biscuit rocky road-ish and these date and fennel chocolate truffles that were also featured in this video along with these almond butter cups.
