Ingredients

1 1/2 cups raw cashews, toasted

1 tablespoon raw cacao butter, melted

2 tablespoons maple sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup dark chocolate morsels plus 1 cup, melted

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Using a blender (preferably high-speed), process the cashews into meal, scraping down the sides if necessary, about 1 minute. Add the melted cacao butter, maple sugar, vanilla and salt and blend until combined, about 5 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool completely; stir in the 1/4 cup morsels. Using a 1 1/4-inch scoop, form cookie dough balls and place on the lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, about 10 minutes. 
  2. Place the melted chocolate in a heatproof bowl and submerge each scoop of cookie dough, turning to coat and shaking off any excess. Return to the lined baking sheet and repeat with the remaining frozen cookie dough scoops, reheating the chocolate as needed. Let set at room temperature, at least 1 hour.

Cook’s Note

Since the dough is sticky, roll your fingers into flour. This will make it easier to roll.
