*All ingredients (apart from large egg x 1) are available at our stores; linked ingredients are available in stores & online.
175g softened butter
1 large egg
150g dark chocolate buttons
240g almond butter (or peanut butter)
- Pre-heat the oven to 190C. Mix butter, sugars and vanilla extract into a bowl and beat until fluffy. Crack in the egg, add the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt, and mix everything together with a spatula.
- This recipe makes 12 cookie cups. Break the dough into 12 golf-ball pieces, and press into your muffin tin. Make sure the dough comes up to the sides, and if you are using a deep muffin tin, the dough should come up halfway.
Bake for around 15mins, don’t worry if they are still a bit soft to the touch, they will harden as they cool down.
To ensure they are cooked, stick a fork or toothpick in the middle of the cookie dough, and if it comes out clean, they are good to be taken out.
- The dough will rise as it bakes, so leave until cool enough to handle, and use a spoon to help you press it up the sides of the hold again. You want to make sure there is space for a decent amount of almond butter in the hole. Use a spoon to help you. Leave to cool completely.
- Set up a double-boiler for your chocolate, and melt gently over medium-low heat. Stir constantly.
Remove the cookie cups from the tin, and fill the cups with your choice of nut butter into the centre of each cup, then cover with the melted chocolate. Leave to cool until the chocolate sets, about 1 hour.
Or let them set in the fridge. Cookie cups can be stored to 5 days in an airtight container.
