This recipe gets 5 stars!  These didn't last very long at all because they were so good!  These were the perfect little dessert and a great quick snack!  I found this recipe on Pinterest and it's from Angela at the Oh She Glows blog.  I knew right when I saw the picture of the almond butter cup that I just HAD to try it!  Lately, I've really been getting into raw desserts and so far I've been loving every single one of them!  I find them refreshing on hot summer days.  Raw desserts also have that interesting appeal to them and I love that they're different than other desserts that I've already tried.  Also, as an added benefit, they're usually much more healthier than a non-vegan dessert, packed with a lot of protein, they typically don't contain a lot of processed ingredients or any at all, and some of them are high in fiber (such as recipes that use dates).  Anyways, if you're looking for a great raw dessert to try out this one is great!

What I Did Differently:

I didn't have the silicone muffin pan so I used a metal muffin pan with paper liners.  I had some trouble with the chocolate sauce leaking down the sides of the nut mixture so I had to make a double batch of sauce.  I think this happened because I wasn't able to really push down the nut mixture and create a seal proof edge without disturbing the paper liner too much.  This still turned out great though!  I would just use a silicone muffin pan or make a double batch of chocolate sauce!

Overall Thoughts:

I really love this recipe and I will be making these again!  I think it would be interesting to change up what nut butters to use.  Next time I want to try a natural peanut butter.  I don't think it will be very long before my Hubby asks me to make these again!
