Chocolate Turmeric Caramel Cups

Who doesn’t love caramel and chocolate together??? They’re the perfect match… but when you add in the superfood Turmeric it takes this killer combo to a ‘nother level!

Tucked inside these Chocolate Turmeric Caramel Cups is a decadent “caramel” made with cashews, almond butter, coconut, turmeric and dates. You see, even when enjoying candy I try to make sure it’s made with nutrient-dense real food ingredients. And, of course, with none of that nasty TBHQ, refined white sugar, and PGPR that you’ll find in Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Blech!

Turmeric sure is unexpected in a candy like this, isn’t it? I love incorporating turmeric in my recipes because not only does it give the filling in these cups a beautiful color, but it’s packed with incredible health benefits.

  1. Thanks for sharing your sweet dessert. It’s not a usual cupcake though because of turmeric and I’m curious about how does it taste. But I’ll definitely try out!

  2. Finally made these today. Thanks for the Deliciousness. I actually made 20 mini cups due to the amount of filling that turned out, so of course I had to melt more chocolate 10 oz. Best part, Husband who is always not interested in anything turmeric, really enjoyed them. Sneaky me did not mention that was one of the ingredients. ♡:)
