With layers of dark chocolate and pumpkin flavored almond butter, these almond butter cups make for the perfect fall or halloween treat!


  • 3 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup Maple Pumpkin Almond Butter
  • Optional for garnish: dry roasted, salted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) or Maldon sea salt


  1. Line a muffin tray with paper liners.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil, stirring frequently until just smooth. Remove from heat.
  3. Cover the bottom layer of each liner with approximately 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate. Let sit in the refrigerator until hardened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Spoon approximately 1/2 tablespoon of maple pumpkin almond butter on top of hardened chocolate. Smooth nut butter out so it forms a flat disc shape.
  5. Cover the nut butter layer with another ~1 tablespoon melted chocolate. Smooth top chocolate layer with a spoon as necessary. Sprinkle a handful of pumpkin seeds or Maldon sea salt on top of each cup. Let sit in the refrigerator until hardened, about 10 minutes.
  6. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.


  1. You may need to reheat chocolate before the second layer if it begins to harden.
  2. Feel free to use regular almond butter or peanut butter as a substitute!
  3. The coconut oil isn’t necessary but I find it helps to melt and spread the chocolate.
