Chocolate cups cut in half

Hazelnut butter chocolate cups


Let me tell you a secret: these hazelnut butter chocolate cups taste like Kinder Bueno. The filling is a mix of white chocolate and hazelnut butter, and it’s delicious.

These are the perfect snack to prepare in advance and eat during the week. The preparation takes only a few minutes and then they have to chill in the fridge until set. They will be ready as an afternoon snack, a pre (or post) workout healthy treat, or to have with coffee and tea.

Moreover, these chocolate cups are naturally gluten-free and can also be easily vegan. You will only need to use vegan dark and white chocolate.

Hazelnut butter chocolate cups that taste like a healthy Kinder Bueno.


  • 1 cup chocolate chips (dark or milk)

  • cup white chocolate

  • 2 tbsp hazelnut butter

  • 10 roasted hazelnuts

How to

  • Melt the dark (or milk) chocolate in a bowl in water bath. You can also heat it in the microwave until fully melted.
  • Line a mini muffin tin with paper cups. Take a teaspoon of melted chocolate and pour it into a liner. Spread the chocolate out evenly and spread it up the sides of the liners. Repeat for the 10 paper cups. Set aside.
  • In a second bowl, melt the white chocolate. Once fully melted, add the hazelnut butter and whisk well.
  • Pour half a tsp of the white chocolate + hazelnut filling in the middle of the chocolate cup. Repeat for all the cups.
  • Chop the hazelnuts and spread a small amount on top of the white chocolate mixture. Press a bit with the back of a spoon.
  • Spread more of the melted dark chocolate over the hazelnut layer and make sure it completely covers the top and all the sides.
  • Tap the muffin tin on the counter gently to release any air bubbles.
  • Place the muffin tin the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes – 1 hour.
