Chocolate Orange Nut Butter Cups

I was never much of a Reeses fan so didn't really understand the obsession with peanut butter cups... until I made them.  These are in a league of their own; dark, orangey, sweet, salty and creamy all at once.  So easy to make and well worth it.

Makes 12-15

175g cacao butter
125g cacao powder
90ml maple syrup
Zest 1 orange
Pinch salt
Cashew butter
Cacao nibs

You will need: a mini muffin tin or mini muffin/truffle cases.  If using mini muffin cases, arrange them on a baking sheet.


- Melt the cacao butter in a bain-marie.  Remove from the heat and add the cacao powder, maple syrup, orange zest and salt.  Stir until smooth.

Fill the muffin holes/cases one third of the way up with the melted chocolate.  Pop in the fridge for 5-7 minutes.

Remove from the fridge and spoon a little cashew butter on top of each of the chocolate discs before filling the rest of the hole/case with chocolate.

Sprinkle with cacao nibs and return to the fridge until completely set.
