What kind of chocolate should I use?
Do not pause in-between the melting process to stir the chocolate. Cook it all the way through for the full two minutes. When ready, allow the chocolate to stand outside of the microwave for 30 seconds before stirring. Know that stirring the chocolate too early cools it down and can turn a perfectly nice melty chocolate into a ratchet mess.

Coconut butter tips for success.
If you’ve ever made fresh coconut butter, you will know that in the beginning, it is creamy and liquidy. However, after it stands at room temperature for about a day or so, it will eventually look like a white solid jar of coconut oil.
To make the gooey center of the cups, simply scrape out the coconut butter and transfer it to an oven-safe bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds. Just enough the melt it. This will help the filling to be a bit more pliable.
Ingredients You Will Need:
Coconut Butter– is the center and star of this recipe. It’s a soft center that not only has the texture we need but creaminess as well. There is no substitution.
Chocolate– is going to be the backbone holding everything together. It will be at the bottom of the cup and the top.
Maple Syrup– will be the natural sweetener that is smooth and adds sweetness without additional graininess. Feel free to omit this ingredient entirely.
