Dark Chocolate Golden Milk Cashew Butter Cups

Yup, we’re going there —> GOLDEN MILK CASHEW BUTTER CUPS. You must try these gems. Paleo and vegan, these cashew butter cups are a quick and healthy dark chocolate treat!

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x
  • Scale:


for the chocolate:

  • 10oz bag dairy-free dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
  • 2 tsp extra virgin coconut oil

for the filling:

  • 1/4 cup creamy cashew butter (I used homemade)
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground cardamom
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract


  1. Line mini muffin pan with 12 paper liners, set aside.
  2. In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in about 20 second increments, stirring in between until chips have completely melted. (You can also melt in a small saucepan on stove over low heat, or a double boiler. Just be careful not to burn your chips whichever method you prefer!)
  3. Scoop about 1 tsp of melted chocolate into 12 muffin liners. Transfer pan to freezer and allow chocolate to set for 5 minutes.
  4. While bottom chocolate layer sets, make your filling: In a small bowl, mix together creamy cashew butter with spices and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  5. Take muffin pan out of freezer. Using ½ teaspoon, scoop a rounded ball of the golden milk cashew butter (equal to about 1 tsp) and place on solid chocolate. Gently press butter down a little bit with back of teaspoon to flatten. Cover in more melted chocolate, about another teaspoon. Transfer pan back to freezer for another 5 minutes until set.
  6. I like to store my chocolate cups in the fridge, then allow to come to room temperature before eating. Enjoy!
