Kiwi Chocolate Cups

Sharing is caring!

Hi all! I want to give Kelli a huge thank you for letting me guest post on her blog! My name is Andrea, and my husband Chad and I own Wild Bean Vanilla Co. When Kelli asked if I could provide some St. Patrick’s Day themed recipes, I knew this recipe would be perfect – fruit and chocolate, plus its green for St. Patrick’s Day?? Perfect! This is a very simple recipe for a fun St. Patrick’s Day dessert.

Those chocolate cups are so incredibly fun! Imagine the possibilities – ice cream, pudding, strawberries with whipped cream – I will definitely be making these again. Thank you again, Kelli!

Andrea and Chad Palmer own Wild Bean Vanilla Company, a family-owned company in Mesa, AZ, specializing in vanilla extracts, vanilla beans, flavored extracts and related vanilla products.

The flavour of the kiwi would be such a lovely contrast to the chocolate - and these Kiwi Chocolate Cups look so pretty too!
