Christmas is next week, and that means its time for treats galore… treats for parties, neighbor gifts, or just to eat before you stop eating sweets for a New Years resolution. These chocolate cups are one of my go-tos because they are so easy, so cute, and sooooo yummy. I love coming up with different variations, and today I wanted to share three of my favorite. So here we go!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Cups
Peanut butter chips
Melt down chips. Add a little bit of oil (I use canola) to liquify, if necessary. Layer the melted chocolate and peanut butter in cupcake liners. Use a toothpick to swirl chocolate and peanut butter together. Put in refrigerator to harden.
Dark Chocolate Orange Almond Coconut Cups
Dark chocolate chips
Melt down chocolate. Add orange extract to taste. If the extract makes the chocolate dry up, add a little bit of oil to liquify. Add almonds and coconut to chocolate until it reaches desired consistency. Scoop into cupcake liners. Put in refrigerator to harden.
Chocolate Peppermint Swirl Cups
Peppermint chips (you could also use white chocolate chips + peppermint extract)
Melt down chips. Add peppermint extract to chocolate to taste. If the extract makes the chocolate dry up, add a little bit of oil to liquify. Layer the melted chocolate and peppermint chips in cupcake liners. Use a toothpick to swirl together. Sprinkle peppermint chips on top. Put in refrigerator to harden.
