These No-Bake Chocolate Macadamia Cups are the perfect gluten free & keto dessert or snack. Plus, you have two chocolate coating recipes to choose from based on how sweet you prefer them to be and the ingredients you have on hand 🙂
I wasn’t planning on posting any recipes until after I was finished with my cookbook, but I just couldn’t help myself!!! My daughter and I made these Keto Chocolate Covered Macadamia Cups last week and we absolutely loved them!!! They’re easy to make, don’t require any baking, and are the perfect treat.
We made these with 2 different chocolate coatings and both were great. For the first chocolate coating, we melted Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips with a little coconut oil to drizzle over the nuts, and for the second coating we used cocoa powder, coconut oil, vanilla, and stevia to sweeten them so they would be super low carb. Plus, the second option is great if you don’t have any chocolate chips on hand or don’t want go buy any 🙂
The first coating that uses the chocolate chips is definitely the version my kids preferred because there was more chocolate per cup and it tasted sweeter. But even though the second coating wasn’t as sweet, it was plenty sweet for me and curbed my chocolate cravings with very little carbs so I preferred the second one, but use whichever one you prefer!
here are the easy steps:
Start by lining a mini muffin tin with cupcake liners and adding 5 or 6 macadamia nuts to each cup.
Then, just drizzle the chocolate coating over the nuts and place in the freezer until set!The white muffin cups have the first chocolate coating (with chocolate chips and coconut oil) and the yellow muffin cups have the second chocolate coating (with cocoa powder and coconut oil). Enjoy!!!

Keto Chocolate Macadamia Cups
These Chocolate Macadamia Cups are the perfect no-bake keto dessert or snack. Plus, you have two chocolate coating recipes to choose from based on how sweet you prefer them to be and the ingredients you have on hand 🙂
- 1/2 Cup Macadamia Nuts
Line a mini muffin tin with 24 muffin cups.
Evenly divide the macadamia nuts between the muffin cups, around 5 or 6 nuts each.
Evenly divide the chocolate coating over the nuts (about 1/2 Tbsp. of chocolate coating #1 and 1 Tbsp. of chocolate coating #2).
Chocolate Coating #1
Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwaveable-safe bowl. Heat for 45 seconds then stir. Heat for 20 seconds then stir again. Repeat heating in 20 second intervals, stirring in between, until chocolate chips are completely melted. If you prefer not to use a microwave, heat chocolate chips and coconut oil in a heatproof bowl over a bowl of boiling water, being careful that the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the water. Stir continuously until melted.
Chocolate Coating #2
Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and mix until well combined.
