You will need:

  • Silicon mini muffin sheets then those work best! Click here to see an example.  If you don't have those you can make larger ones with muffin tins and baking cups!
  • Saucepan

General Process:

  • Stir half of your base combination in a saucepan on low-medium heat and constantly stir until melted. Remove from heat.
  • Poor in 1/3 of the tin with your mixture
  • Put in the freezer for about ten minutes so that it gets a little hard
  • Melt the remainder of your base combination in a saucepan on low-medium heat and constantly stir until melted. Remove from heat.
  • Then add 1/3 of the filling of your choice
  • Add the rest of the base combination so the nut/seed butter is covered.

  • Freeze for a good hour or two and keep frozen or refrigerated after that
