Sea Salted Dark Chocolate Almond Cups

I like to think of these as a delicious, more sophisticated version of the sugar-loaded Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. The best part about these are obviously the taste, but also that each ingredient has some great health benefits! Who needs to buy cups in a store when you can make them so simply! Make a batch or two and keep them out as a fun ‘finger food’ treat that everyone will love.
