Chocolate Cups:
1 1/2 cups260 g dark chocolate chips
1 teaspoon1 teaspoon coconut oil

Cookie Dough:
1/3 cup65 g garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
Pinch salt
Pinch baking soda
1 teaspoon1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Tahitian Pure Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 teaspoon1 teaspoon maple syrup (or more for sweeter dough)
1 tablespoon old-fashioned oats
1 tablespoon1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk, if needed to thin out
1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips

In a microwave safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Melt at 50% power, for 30 seconds, then at 15 second intervals until chocolate is smooth.

Using twelve muffin cup liners, add the melted chocolate. With a spoon paint some of the chocolate up the walls of the liners. Place in fridge to chill.

Meanwhile, prepare cookie dough dip by placing all ingredients, except chocolate chips, into a small blender. Process until smooth. Place in small bowl and fold in chocolate chips.

Once chocolate cups have set. Place a bit of cookie dough into each cup. Wet your fingertips with a bit of water and flatten the dough, leaving a bit of room so the chocolate can fully encase the cookie dough. (If it doesn’t, no worries. You will just have a bit of the dough sticking through on the edges. They will still taste great!)

To finish, pour and smooth the remaining chocolate over the cookie dough until it is just covered. You may need to microwave the chocolate a bit more if it has hardened.

Place the cups in the fridge to set.
Store the cups in an air-tight container in the fridge.
