Why Dark Chocolate?

First of all, dark chocolate as most of us already know, is loaded with nutrients that your body will love. Dark chocolate is made from the seed of a cocoa tree, which is one of the best sources of antioxidants. Studies show that dark chocolate can help improve your health, reduce the risk of heart disease, improve brain functionality, and more!

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Line mini muffin pan with paper liners; set aside.
  2. Melt in a small saucepan on the stove over low heat. Stir until the chips have completely melted. Be careful not to burn the chocolate.
  3. Scoop a ½ tablespoon of the melted chocolate into liners. Transfer pan to freezer and allow the chocolate to set for 5 minutes.
  4. While the bottom layer sets, make your filling: In a small bowl, microwave the almond butter for 15-20 seconds, until slightly melted.
  5. Stir in the collagen matcha powder and maple syrup in the filling. Mix well and set aside.
  6. Take the muffin pan out of the freezer. Using a ½ teaspoon, scoop a rounded ball of the filling and place on the solidified chocolate.
  7. Gently press the butter down with the back of the teaspoon. Cover with the melted chocolate (½ tablespoon.).  Repeat this step until the muffin pan filled.
  8. Set the tray in the fridge for 1 hour until solid. Enjoy whenever you like!
