  • Method: Microwave
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1 cup chocolate chips, any kind
  • 2 tsp. cold jam, marmalade, or nut/seed butter


  1. Using a mini muffin pan, place one mini cup liner each into 12 of the wells; set aside.
  2. In a microwave-safe medium bowl add chocolate chips. Microwave 1 minute. Remove bowl from microwave; stir chocolate. Repeat in increments of 30 seconds until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  3. Add 1 teaspoon of the melted chocolate into each of the 12 cup liners, pressing the back of the teaspoon into the chocolate to spread halfway up the liners. 
  4. Place 1/8 teaspoon of the cold jam, marmalade, or nut/seed butter into the middle of each of the chocolate-filled wells to create the filling. Do not allow filling to touch the sides of the cup liners. 
  5. Add 1 teaspoon of the melted chocolate into each cup liner to cover filling. Let stand 1-2 hours to set, or refrigerate 30 minutes.
  6. Remove cup liners before eating. Enjoy cold or at room temperature.


If filling touches sides of cup liners, use a toothpick to push it back into the middle.
