Caramel Cups

Makes 12 mini cups


CARAMEL:
1/2 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Soak dates until soften.
In a blender, mix the dates with other ingredients until the texture is creamy and completely smooth. Transfer to a bowl and cover. Refrigerate while preparing the chocolate cups.

CUPS
200g extra dark chocolate (70% cocoa)

Melt the chocolate into a double boiler until smooth. Set aside and allow to cool until lukewarm. The chocolate texture should be creamy and not liquid anymore. Line a mini muffin tray with mini muffin paper cases. Spoon 1 tablespoons of chocolate into each case and, using a small brush, brush the chocolate up the cases. Freeze for 10 minutes. Fill each cup with the caramel and top with the remaining chocolate. Refrigerate for 60 minutes. Remove the paper cases to serve. If you wish, you can sprinkle with chocolate nuggets, sea salt, rose petals.

Sublime !!!
