Are you looking to prepare a delicious, crowd-pleasing dessert for the sweeties in your life? Consider these Fruit and Nut and Superfood Chocolate Cups, two of the most popular desserts I make. They come together in minutes, look beautifully artisan and are topped with a variety of health-promoting goodies.

Wow the Crowd

Fruit & Nut or Superfood

Chocolate Cups

makes 12 cups or 24 mini-cups



1 3/4 cup non-dairy semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (I find Guittard melts best)


Option 1 –  Fruit & Nut toppings:

1 Medjool date, finely chopped

1 dried fig, finely chopped

2 tablespoons pomegranate arils

2 tablespoons pistachios, chopped

sprinkle of sea salt


Option 2 –  super-food toppings:

2 teaspoons whole chia seeds

2 teaspoons whole flax seeds

1 tablespoon cocoa nibs

1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds

1 tablespoon goji berries

sprinkle of sea salt



Line a 12 cup, or 24 mini-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners.

In a medium sized bowl, microwave the chocolate chips until melted, periodically pausing the microwave to stir them. Microwaves vary considerable in power so timing for this step will vary.

Use a small spoon to divvy the melted chocolate evenly in the prepared muffin cups.

On top of the chocolate, distribute either the option 1 or option 2 toppings evenly. Sprinkle with sea salt, if desired.

Place in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to harden.


With warmest wishes…xo,
