Choc Carmel Cups 

Choc Caramel Cups 

Well, chocolate and caramel is a killer combo, we all know that. I haven’t yet experimented with a low fructose caramel (it will come) but here we are with a date caramel, and I swear it tastes just like the real thing. These chocs are actually far too big – I used silicone cupcake molds (all I had). Way too big, because they are super rich. Not that it stopped me eating them! I had left over caramel sauce so I popped it in the fridge and decided to ball it and roll it in coconut, you really don’t need this as an extra with this (purely for the pic). If you have extra sauce warm it up and pour it over whatever you can think of! 

Equipment required 

1 high powered blender or hand processor (I used a hand processor but a high powered blender would make it really smooth!)

Chocolate molds 

Small saucepan 

Glass bowl 


For the chocolate 

1 cup of cocoa butter 
3/4 cup of raw cacoa 

4 tbsp rice malt syrup 

2 tsp vanilla

Pinch of salt  

Caramel sauce 

200g dates 

1/2 cup of coconut oil

1/2 cup of coconut milk 

Salt to taste 

Method to the madness 

For the chocolate 

Place a small amount of water in the saucepan and turn it to a medium high heat – place the mixing bowl on top of the saucepan and add the cocoa butter 

Once the butter is melted add the vanilla, syrup, raw cacoa, pinch of salt and mix until smooth 

Spoon about half the mixture into the molds – place it in the fridge while you make the caramel 

For the caramel

De-pitt the dates and process with the coconut oil and milk until smooth – add in a pinch of salt, mix, taste, continue to add until desired taste  

Remove the chocolates from the fridge and dollop in the caramel, spoon the remaining chocolate over the top and set in the fridge 


*note because they are refrigerated the caramel is hard, you can leave them out of the fridge before serving but the chocolate goes a bit soft too. I have made chocolate before without using the fridge, but haven’t tried it with these.. I’ll let you know once I try it if you get a gooey centre! Xx
