As IF I had my fill of healthy Nutella! That's just not possible. I could eat the stuff straight up.
Wait, I did... and if you remember, I perhaps... may have... just possibly ate it off a knife. Oh my, chocolate makes you do craaazzyy things sometimes.
So I made these candy cups in attempt to consume my Nutella in a safer manner. Because a thick, sweet chocolate shell totally means this is safe...
I made my homemade Nutella as soon as I ran out (obviously), and serving them in a chocolate casing just sounded natural to me. Each cup is sweet, creamy and absolutely delicious. Yum!
"Nutella" Chocolate Candy Cups: [no bake, sugar free, GF, vegan*]
(makes 8 cups)
3.5oz Sugar Free Milk Chocolate*, melted
1/3 cup Homemade Nutella
1. Spoon about ~2 tsp of melted chocolate into this mold or muffin liners and spread to make a chocolate base and chocolate "walls." Freeze for 30 minutes to an hour, or until chocolate is completely firm.
2. Spoon ~1 tbs of the Nutella into each well, or until it comes close to the tops of the chocolate "walls," and flatten the surface by tapping the mold or liner on the counter a few times.
3. Spoon ~1 tsp of melted chocolate onto the Nutella and spread until it touches the tops of the chocolate "walls." Refrigerate for at least 3 hours (the longer the better though, I know it's tough to wait!). Pop each cup onto a nice plate and serve (best when served chilled)
*I've seen vegan milk chocolate at Whole Foods, health foods stores and online, but you may use any chocolate you like.
Feel free to stir in some chopped hazelnuts into the "Nutella" and fill the chocolate cups with that!
Mmmm, enjoy :)
