If you know me at all, you know how much I LOVE nut butter and chocolate. I’m pretty sure I can’t go a day without the combo!

It’s due time I share my tried-and-true, minimal-ingredient recipe for my homemade nut butter cups. I’ve been making them for years!

Feel free to use any nut butter of your choosing. I’ve been leaning towards almond butter lately, but you can’t go wrong no matter your choice.

I use a mini muffin pan like this one.
