Prep time: 15 min

Cooling time: at least 1 hour

Total time:1 hr 15 min 

Servings: 6 cups

 

For the date and peanut butter caramel you’ll need: 

200g dates, soaked in warm water

2 heaped tbsp peanut butter 

pinch of salt 

1/4 cup plant based milk 

 

For the cups you’ll need: 

150g 85% dark chocolate 

6 tsp date and peanut butter caramel 

4 tbsp roasted and salted peanuts to top 

 

Instructions: 

  1. In a food processor, mix combine all ingredients for the peanut butter & date caramel and blend until creamy. A few chunks may remain, but if you prefer, blend until completely smooth. 
  2. Melt the chocolate in a small metal bowl over a simmering pot of water and evenly distribute it into your 6 cup moulds (I used silicone ones, you can also use muffin shapes made from paper). Top each chocolate-filled mold with 1 teaspoon worth of that precious peanut butter & date caramel and lastly add some peanuts on top. 
  3. Freeze for at least 1 hour, then serve! ♥
