So these raspberry chocolate almond butter cups are pretty much out of this world. We turned to Instagram last week to ask for some interesting flavor combinations and freeze-dried raspberries kept coming up! Obviously, this caught my attention and I immediately went to Trader Joe’s to pick some up. Don’t worry, I found some really great Amazon options HERE, HERE, and HERE in case you don’t live by a Trader Joe’s. I’ve never actually cooked with freeze-dried raspberries, but they are AMAZING for nut butter cups and 100% made this recipe. So, what do you need?

Here’s what you need:

I’d say that all of these items are rather easy to find in all grocery stores, but you can always order online! If you’re wondering what kind of DRIPPY almond butter I like, my suggestions are Kirkland brand from Costco, Trader Joe’s brand, and Fresh Thyme’s brand. I stress drippy because drippy usually means all-natural AKA no additives, which is what I like to look for.

The flavor of these babies is so nummy. I’d say that the raspberries aren’t super intesnse, but you can definitely taste them! It’s like a subtle hint of raspberry tang. Since I know you’re going to ask, yes you can sub any other kind of nut butter and/or sticky sweetener in place of maple syrup. Enjoy!
