These are decadent. Seriously. I can only eat half of one at a time. The rest I keep in the fridge or freezer as a special treat.
They are totally worth it though- that chai and chocolate combination is one that can’t be beat. Are you #teamchai or #teampumpkinspice? I am definitely team chai. Cardamom AND cinnamon?! Come on!!
I used a 90% chocolate chunks but use your favourite dark chocolate. You could even try 100% if you don’t like sweet. The maple syrup mixed with the cashew butter is also optional and I can see it being replaced with honey or coconut sugar or even monk fruit sweetener for all of the keto people out there.
