  • ½ teaspoon coconut oil

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Line a standard 12-muffin pan with cupcake liners. Set aside for later.
  2. Make the Coconut Cups: Add Coconut Cups ingredients to a blender or food processor. Blend until you get a wet and sticky dough-like mixture, with smaller but still noticeable coconut pieces.
  3. Scoop about 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon of coconut mixture into each muffin cup. Press down and smooth until you get a tightly packed layer. Coconut mixture will be sticky.*
  4. Make the Chocolate Layer: Add Chocolate Layer ingredients to a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave in 20-second increments until melted. Stir in between heating, until smooth.
  5. Scoop and drop 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate onto each cup. Using a small spoon, spread chocolate into an even layer. Tap the pan a few times to even out the chocolate. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of Coconut Topping onto each cup. Set aside.
  6. Make the Chocolate Drizzle: add Chocolate Drizzle ingredients to the bowl of leftover melted chocolate. Heat in the microwave in 20-30 second increments until just softened. Stir until smooth. Pour melted chocolate into a zip bag and trim off a very small tip. Drizzle all cups.
  7. Place muffin pan into the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Thaw for 10-15 minutes before serving. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
