Halloween Sticky Chocolate Cups

Aren’t these spooky? Yeah, not at all. Whatever. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Paula Dean is cooking macaroni and cheese in her crockpot as I type this post. I sometimes envy her life.

I’ve stopped parting my hair on the opposite side. That only lasted 2 days. It was painful. Seriously, painful.

So I have now had 2 Halloween’s on my blog. Last year I was Rainbow Bright. I didn’t even know who Rainbow Bright was before that night, when my friend let me borrow her outfit. This year, I was a bit classier. Not really, but I’ll act like I was. I was Aubrey Hepburn, minus the long cigarette and huge sunglasses, with a seriously short sequin dress. So really, not Audrey Hepburn at all. I found the dress at Buffalo Exchange, which is a place that loves to overcharge you for second hand clothes. Which sucks, because I really love that store. Either way, I loved the dress so I had to make an outfit around it.

But I can say one thing, this year was fairly similar to last years. Too much alcohol was consumed, had to leave the party early, woke up wondering what the hell happened. I was drinking off my stolen car. Makes total sense. But this time I woke up in pajamas, in my own bed (unlike being in Laura’s last year) and figured out some of what had happened the night before through my text messages.

One of my texts to a friend included the following messages:

“Too much”



I came to find out that I told Laura that I needed to leave the bar when it was around 12:30. We got a cab ride home, she forced me to eat plantain chips (when I say forced, I’m guessing I stuffed them down my face as quickly as possible) and we watched twilight. It must have been an awesome night if it ended with Twilight. That was the third time I watched in over the weekend.

Sunday was super productive, especially since I didn’t have a car. So first I talked to Sergio. Went on and on about how hungover I was, since of course I’m sure he cares since he’s fighting for our country in Afghanistan. Then once our friend Sarah was kind enough to take us to Laura’s car, we went on to stuff our faces with probably the best tasting food I’ve had in a good solid 4 months. Then I watched I thiiiiiiink 3 movies. One of which was Twilight. And then I found my weed infested car. Productivity quality at it’s highest.

I hate drinking. It’s poison. And makes feel like poop. And I become a plantain chip hoarder. I think I had some chips in my hair. Classy Juli.


Halloween Sticky Chocolate Cups

  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 69 ounces dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup almond butter (sunflower seed butter for nut free!)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


  1. In a bowl, mix together your almond butter, honey, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
  2. In another bowl, melt your chocolate. I used the microwave but you could also use a double boiler.
  3. Now place 6 silicone liners in your muffin tin. If you don’t have silicone liners, paper muffin liners will work just fine.
  4. Use a glazing brush or a spoon to spread some of your chocolate in the bottom of your muffin tin.
  5. Then pour a bit of your almond butter into the cup.
  6. Then top off with another small dollop of chocolate, spreading out to make a circle.
  7. Repeat in all cups.
  8. Place in freezer for an hour or more.
  9. Pull out of liners. The almond butter will sticky and stick a little to the sides of the liners.
  10. Eat up for your Halloween treat!


If you don’t want them sticky and want them to put more of a “Reese’s” type chocolate up, fill the bottom of the liner with chocolate and your almond butter. Freeze for an hour, then pour your chocolate on top, covering all of your almond butter, then freeze for another 30 minutes.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Juli.. I swear you were sent here from Paleo heaven! Thank you for giving us wonderful recipes! I can not wait to make these!!!

  2. I’m not going to say “that’s what she said” to Dan’s comment, because that would be inappropriate…

    Juli – as someone who enjoys drinking a lot, I have a solid recipe to prevent the hangover feelings. 1) Drink only vodka & soda (preferably potato vodka), 2) Mix emergen-c with your first drink, 3) take two milk thistles with your first drink too, 4) repeat step #1 repeatedly

  3. I was watching that episode of Paula Dean yesterday!! She is such a rockstar! Too bad her recipes will make your heart stop. 🙁 This recipe looks awesome!! Definately going to try this tonight!!

  4. These just made my day, one being they remind me of a Reese’s Cup, two because total time to make is 10 minutes.

    Also how do you tease with, “the best tasting food in a good solid 4 months,” and not mention what was consumed?

  5. so after at least 2 rounds this month of HEAVY drinking and generally feeling like a huuuuge pile of crap the next day, i’ve taken on “sober November” NO alcohol consumed.none..that is my plan…lose a couple unnecessary lbs, get stronger, generally feel much better.yep. cant wait. try it? it’ll be my first time

  6. Don’t feel bad about not liking drinking – I can’t drink much myself due to a genetic condition called alcohol flush syndrome, basically my body can’t digest alcohol.

    It gets kind of annoying that so many social events revolve around massive consumption of alcohol, and a nondrinker has to put up with a lot of ridicule and peer pressure if they aren’t gulping it down fast. It takes a long time to explain the genetic condition and then people don’t believe you anyway.

    Personally I don’t see what the big deal is if I can’t drink, I’m pretty much the DD for the rest of my life so everyone should just leave people alone if they don’t want to or can’t drink much alcohol.

  7. I love that your first mention of Audrey Hepburn was actually typed AuBrey Hepburn. Classic confusion of the name! It’s great because I usually get called Audrey. Thanks for doing the other way!

  8. Friends don’t let friends hoover plantain chips, a real friend would have been like “I got this” and eaten them for you. Yay friends! Of course, if you then were to turn into a demon chip succubi, the bag would have gladly been handed over… with extreme haste.

    I can only imagine if there were a photo of said “Juli Hepburn(-ish)”, all made up in an awesome dress, drunk, happy and complete with plantain chip hair accessory! Ahahaha!

    Does it really count as “watching” Twilight if you were unable to remember the viewing? Alright, now I’m just pickin’ on ya, haha.

  9. What brand silicone liners do people recommend? I want to get some but hear mixed reviews on some still sticking to food. Thanks!

  10. Yay! Happy Halloween! Deployments are hard, glad u are hearing from your friend Sergio. My husband is due home in May therefor I must consume paleo chocolate treats to keep a smile on my face. Thanks for all the amazing recipes!

  11. I successfully changed my part – you can do it you keep at it! Evenmore, I can now flip flop my part depending on how I want to style my hair! 🙂

    These look absolutely delish – too bad I’m doing the 21DSD until my birthday in 2 weeks. I’ll definitely save the recipe. Can’t wait to celebrate!

  12. Ahh… Rainbow Brite… memories.

    Halloween, one of my favorite holidays. So witchy, so spooky. Of course it probably helps that Halloween is my birthday 😉 Oh how the years pass by. I am now a quarter of a century old.

    On Sunday I took my dog to dog trick or treating in Old Town, Alexandria. I dressed him up as Harry Potter, aka, Furry Potter. He was the bomb diggity. I’ll have to email you photo of him the next chance I get.

    Therefore, yesterday for Halloween my roommate and I took two little girls trick or treating, and our dogs came along of course. So I decided at the last minute that since my dog was Harry Potter, I should do my best Hermione impersonation. Of course it probably helps that I have an actual replica of Harry Potter’s wand… yes, that would be my inner nerd coming out 🙂

  13. Love your blog! I’m not generally a commenter, but I made these in mini-muffin tins and they were like little bite size pieces of heaven. Delicious!

  14. Looks (and sounds) super yummy… but ummmm……. how would they have made these in the Paleolithic Era?? Chocolate was unknown until some time later. Love the recipe though.

  15. I was just informed by my husband that I will be making these sometime this weekend. I don’t have a choice.

    Thanks for a paleo-fied chocolate/peanut butter treat!


  16. These are amazing! I used the tiny muffin cup liners and they are a quick treat whenever I need something sweet

  17. Thank you for this recipe! They are amazing and taste like heaven in my mouth.
    I made with both paper liners and foil liners. The foil worked best, but the paper works too–you just have to do a little bit more peeling to get them out.
    My husband and I are thankful for Juli B and Paleomg this Thanksgiving. 😉

  18. I just made these minus the cinnamon. I chilled the filling to make them not so oozy. And because I used mini muffin size I have leftover filling in my freezer. I’m thinking a late night spoonful will be decadent.

  19. My muffin tin was soaking after another disasterous try at egg muffins (found the recipe on another site, tried it four times, never again). Anyways, I was desperate to make these, so I rolled the filling into balls and then rolled the balls in the chocolate. My husband made me hide the left overs because he wanted to eat them ALL on the spot. He likes my chocolate balls <3 I got about 15 balls with this recipe. New potluck go to, I think.

    1. That was a great idea to roll the balls in the chocolate- I made them by filling the cups and it was too much chocolate (if that is even possible LOL). These were the PERFECT way to satisfy my sweet craving!! Loved them!

  20. I have made these several times now! I took them to our crossfit box New Years Day Paleo Party and everyone loved them! Thank you! I can’t stop eating them!

  21. I, too, am a plantain chip hoarder. I have house guests staying for an indefinite amount of time. I’m absolutely sure they will gobble them up as soon as my back is turned. I am hiding those plantain chips in a place they cannot reach without standing on a chair. Sometimes, only sometimes, I feel like a terrible person.

  22. I knew I could count on Juli to hook up an AWESOME paleo treat. Got a wild hair this morning and wondered if these delicious little treats could be made by the lay person; thanks for walkin’ me through it. Love your blog, love your recipes!!

  23. Just to let you know – these are a new staple in my house. I keep them in my fridge for when I need a quick sweet bite.
    they’re amazing!! Thank you!

  24. Hi Juli- I made your Magic Brownies yesterday.. AMAZING. (I almost ate the whole tray in one sitting, embarassing to admit). Anyhoo- question for you, what type of dark chocolate chips do you use?
    Thank you so much for these fantastic recipes! I am 15 days paleo and they have helped me ENORMOUSLY.

  25. These are killer good. I just started Paleo and I was worried I would be missing my Reese’s peanut butter cups. I used Eat Life mega chocolate chunks and Maranatha no stir almond butter…these are frickin delicious. Whew. I now have something to scratch my itch! Thank you so much.

  26. I used Enjoy Life chocolate chips which are free of garbage (corn and soy!), cashew butter instead of almond, local organic raw honey, cassia powder :s, alcohol free vanilla, & sea salt.

  27. Thank you so much for this awesome recipe! I have been Paleo now for a month and let me tell you Reese cups are my weakness!! Made these last night and they were so awesome, I went and bought your book! You are genius!! Thank you, thank you!!
