For the chocolate:

For the caramel:

  • 8 Medjool dates pitted*
  • 2-3 Tablespoons water
  • big pinch of sea salt


  1. Line a muffin tin with 9 paper liners.
  2. Place the coconut oil in a bowl and microwave for about 20 seconds or until melted.
  3. Whisk in the maple syrup and the unsweetened cocoa powder.
  4. Spoon some chocolate into each paper liner, then refrigerate for about 15 minutes or until firm. You should have half of the chocolate left over.
  5. Make the date caramel: Place the pitted dates, sea salt, and 2 tablespoons water in a mini food processor. Process until the dates are pureed and very smooth. If needed, add more water.
  6. Spoon some date caramel into each paper liner.
  7. Spoon some more chocolate on top of the caramel in each cup, and use the back of a spoon to smooth it out.
  8. Place in the refrigerator to chill for at least one hour before eating. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

*If the dates are dry, soak them in warm water for 5-10 minutes, then drain before placing them in the food processor.
