Preparation

  • To make the crust: Crumble the Protein Cookie with a food processor or mixer until it's an even mass of crumbs.
  • Add the coconut oil. Pulse again until the mix sticks together a bit.
  • Get a muffin pan and line 4 of the cups with plastic wrap.
  • Divide the cookie-crust mix evenly amongst the muffin cups. Press firmly into all the edges with your fingertips. Set side in the fridge.
  • Meanwhile, soften the Salted Caramel Protein Cream and the dark chocolate (or Hazelnut Protein Cream) for 30 seconds each in the microwave or over a double boiler.
  • Now dollop 1 teaspoon of the Salted Caramel Protein Cream into each cookie crust.
  • Then spread the dark chocolate over the top of all four of the salted caramel cups. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Set the no-bake salted caramel cups into the fridge for 3-4 hours to harden.
  • Enjoy!
