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
- 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.
- 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.
- Freeze for at least 1 hour, then serve! ♥
