Salted Pecan Butter Cups

10.4.18

I can’t believe Halloween is at the end of the month! Rob and I are headed to Chile and will be gone for Halloween so I thought I would start celebrating early by making some sweet and salty treats!  

Nut butter cups are hands down one of my favorite desserts! I love the sweet and salty combo from the chocolate and the nut butter. I love Justin’s White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups and Eating Evolved’s Caramel Coconut Butter Cups, but lately I rather make my own… probably because I fill them with more nut butter and chocolate!

They’re just so tasty and the perfect treat to keep stashed in your freezer when your dessert craving hits!

I recently tried pecan butter for the first time. I’ve been hooked on cashew butter lately and I haven’t wanted to eat any other type of nut butter. As soon as I tried pecan butter I knew right away that I needed to make pecan butter cups!! I made both dark chocolate and white chocolate because I couldn’t decide which kind to make! Hope you guys enjoy =)

Salted Pecan Butter Cups

Prep time
30 min
Total time
30 min

Ingredients

  • 10 oz bag white chocolate chips
  • 10 oz bag dark chocolate chips
  • 10 tsp pecan butter (I used Georgia Grinders, but any pecan butter will work)
  • pink Himalayan sea salt
  • Crushed pecans

Direction

  1. Melt white and dark chocolate in the microwave (Stir every 30 seconds until chocolate becomes a liquid). Make sure to melt each chocolate separate.
  2. Once the chocolate is melted, place 1 tbsp of chocolate in each muffin tin lined with parchment paper cups. Place the muffin tin in the fridge or freezer for at least 10 mins.
  3. Remove muffin tin from fridge or freezer and add about 1 tbsp pecan butter to each muffin tin.
  4. Add remaining melted chocolate. Be sure to cover the pecan butter.
  5. Top each cup with crushed pecans and a sprinkle of sea salt.
  6. Place back in fridge or freezer for another 10 mins.
  7. Store in airtight container in the fridge or freezer!
