Iā€™m introducing you to my secret weapon: Dark Chocolate Almond Cream Cheese Cups. Yes, it is a mouth full. And yes, you will have your mouth stuffed with these delicious chocolate cups filled with creamy almond cream cheese.

Dark Chocolate Almond Cream Cheese Cups are my secret no-bake dessert weapon. In only 15 minutes and 5 ingredients you will have your new favorite dessert.

Dark chocolate almond cream cheese cups have sophisticated flavors and an impressive presentation. The best part? I make them in just 15 minutes with no baking! You will need some special tools, like candy bags. They make melting and cleaning up chocolate super easy. Just put your candy melts in the bag, stick it in a microwave safe glass and heat. Snip the tip and you are ready to go! When you are done, just throw it away. There is nothing worse than trying to get dried chocolate out of a bowl. Believe me, I did it last night when I was dipping my chocolate covered candy canes.

Chocolate Covered Candy Canes

If you don’t have access to candy melts (available at most grocery and craft stores), just melt dark chocolate chips or a candy bar with with shortening, about 1 teaspoon per 3/4 cup. Heat and stir frequently to prevent it from scalding and melting creamy and smooth.

I hope you and your family have a happy holiday and enjoy my Dark Chocolate Almond Cream Cheese Cups. If need more items to fill up your cookie tray, check out my Peppermint Macarons, Chocolate Bacon Saltine Toffee and Peppermint Cake Mix Cookies!
