Ingredients

For the filling
  • 1/2 cup organic raw almond butter
  • 1/2 cup organic medjool dates (pitted)
  • 2 tablespoons organic coconut oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons organic pumpkin spice
  • 1 pinch Himalayan pink salt
For the chocolate
  • 1 cup raw chocolate chunks, or use Enjoy Life mini-chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil

Instructions

Prepare the filling
  1. Add all ingredients for the filling to a food processor and process until it is well blended and a thick paste-type consistency. Set aside.
Prepare the chocolate
  1. Add all the ingredients for the chocolate to a small saucepan and melt on low heat until it's smooth, stirring the entire time to make sure it doesn't burn. RFR Tip: you can also use a double boiler method.
Assembly
  1. You're going to make 3 layers. After adding each layer to the silicone baking cups, you will put them in the freezer for about 15 minutes so each layer can harden before adding the next layer.
  2. Bottom layer: Add 1 spoonful of the chocolate mixture to the bottom of each silicone baking cup; place in the freezer for about 15 minutes, or until it's hardened just enough to add the next layer; remove from freezer.
  3. Middle layer: Add 2 tablespoons of the filling on top of the chocolate layer; place in the freezer for about 15 minutes, or until it's hardened just enough to add the next layer; remove from freezer.

Notes

Store in the freezer or refrigerator until ready to serve because they will get soft and lose their shape if left out at room temperature. Enjoy!

Hi there, I’m Karielyn! I’m a wife and mother of three (daughter 20 years old, son 7 years old and son 5 years old) and I’ve been married for 24 years. I try very hard to make sure my family has healthy, nutrient-dense and wholesome foods to eat and that we avoid detrimental foods that can destroy and undermine our health.  Since I purchase the groceries and prepare the meals for our family, I do not take this responsibility lightly – it has always been my number one priority since embracing healthier food choices over 7 years ago. love to make everything I can from scratch and avoid processed foods as much as possible.  I'm very proud to have two young boys who love kale, goji berries, hemp seeds and my green smoothies. I am passionate about eating and buying healthy, organic, unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods and ingredients and hope I can relay some of that passion with you.   On my website, The Healthy Family and Home, I share easy to make raw, vegan and gluten-free recipes using clean, wholesome ingredients.  I also provide "5 Fast Facts" about the key ingredients in the recipes I post listing the nutritional benefits of each one so you can "feel good about what you eat". No matter what diet plan you follow, I want to help you make healthier food choices, read ingredient labels and learn about what's in the foods you eat. Eat like it matters...because it does!
