Recipe type: Sweet Treats
- Heat some water in a medium sized pot over a medium heat until simmering. Turn down to low. Place the dark chocolate in a smaller pot and place over the simmering water and stir until melted. Add the coconut oil and stir until melted and smooth.
- Using your moulds, half fill each mould with chocolate, pour ½ teaspoon of nut butter into each one (varying the flavours as you go). Carefully place a layer of slivered almonds over the top of the nut butter and chocolate and then fill to the top with melted chocolate. Repeat using the rest of the ingredients. Place in the freezer to set for at least an hour or overnight.
