Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups

Once upon a time, on a cold dark winter night, I was living in a tiny condo in downtown Toronto. The condo was a furnished short-term rental, and the kitchen was bare-bones - not a pan, whisk, or mixing bowl to be seen. It was about this time of the year, and I wanted to make a festive treat to enjoy with my sweetheart. Something easy. Something beautiful. Something familiar, but different...

I perused some of my favourite food blogs, and was inspired by this stellar recipe for peanut butter cups. I imagined a variation with 2 of my favorite things: super-fine dark chocolate and smooth almond butter. Add a sprinkle of sea salt and whoa ~

I have to say I LOVE these

I have to say I LOVE these so much better than those "other" nut butter cups. They're especially yummy with the sea salt sprinkled on top, as it totally brings out the dark chocolate and roasted almond flavors.

YUM! I love trying different
