Chocolate Caramel Cups

 

Chocolate Caramel Cups

You will need a mini muffin tray and mini patty papers!

I love the combination of chocolate and caramel don’t you? Each chocolate cup has the surprise of sticky chewy caramel in the centre!! Not so great to make in the heat that is for sure! However “a girl has gotta do what a girl has gotta do” for some chocolate of the healthier kind.
It is best to make the caramel first and give it time to cook and cool down before making the chocolate.

For the Caramel
Ingredients:

1 x 400ml tin coconut cream
2/3 cup rice malt syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp ground salt
1/8 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Method:

Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan over low heat and stir every half hour. Cook for 2 – 21/2 hours until thick and sticky. Then spoon into a glass container, allow to cool.

For the Chocolate
Ingredients:

1 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup rice malt syrup
1 T cacao butter

Method:

Make the chocolate in a double boiler, or create a water bath using a heat safe bowl and a pot of boiling water. Whisk the  coconut oil, cacao powder,  vanilla , rice malt syrup and cacao butter until well combined. Pour chocolate into a jug for easy pouring into the patty papers.

Assemble:

Place patty papers into the mini muffin tray and then pour chocolate in to cover the base of the patty papers.

Then dollop a tsp of caramel mixture on top of the chocolate base. Pour remaining chocolate over to cover the caramel. Place into the fridge to set!

(If you wish to have salted caramel then sprinkle with a small pinch of salt on top of the chocolate 30-45 mins after it has been in the fridge, so it does not melt in the warm chocolate)

Be Well
