Chocolate Cups

  • Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small glass bowl and microwave until chocolate starts to melt. Using a silicone spatula, stir until completely melted and smooth.
  • Pour about a tsp of chocolate into the baking cup and gently move the baking cup around in all directions distributing the chocolate evenly around. If needed, add more chocolate into the baking cup.
  • Place each baking cup in the freezer right after coating in chocolate. Repeat process until you cover about 10-12 baking cups.

Dulce de Leche Truffles

  • To roll the dulce de leche into balls, it’s best that the dulce de leche is cold.
  • Place a small amount of coconut oil on the palm of your hands, scoop up a small amount of dulce de leche into your hands. Roll them into a treat size ball, then roll them in sprinkles.
  • Place the treats on a plate and refrigerate.


  • Meanwhile, remove chocolate baking cups from he freezer and peel the paper off. Since the chocolate is thin, I found that it’s best to literally rip the paper off, like you do with a piece of candy rather then trying to pull it away.
  • Place dulce de leche balls inside the chocolate cups and serve.
  • Keep refrigerated.
