Salty sweet, irresistibly smooth, these little chocolate cups filled with dulce de leche are my absolute weakness!

It’s no secret I live for chocolate and dulce de leche. I mean, this cheesecake, this decadent layer cake, these brownies, these bars… You got the idea, I love them sweets!

And here I’m with yet another dessert featuring this decadent combination.

I was inspired by popular peanut butter chocolate cups. But since I don’t love peanut butter that much – I know I’m crazy, but hope we can still be friends – I filled mine with what I love most.

And to balance off all that sweetness, I sprinkled some sea salt flakes. I use this Maldon sea salt flakes, because it’s the best stuff! The combination is just perfection, I’m telling ya.

Tips for success

For this recipe, I highly recommend using good quality chocolate that you love eating on its own. Ghirardelli is one of two brands that I simply adore. (The other one is Lindt.) No, I’m not paid to tell you this. And you know, I’d have let you know right away, if I was.

Well, anyway, start with chocolate that you truly love. And for easy melting, chop them nice and fine. I usually follow the microwave instructions on the packaging. Mine says 1 minute at 50% power, then 30 seconds also at 50% power until fully melted, stirring at each round.

Also we’re mixing in a little bit of coconut oil into the chocolate, which helps to keep the chocolate smooth and soft. When I tried making this recipe without any oil, the chocolate hardened a bit too much and it was tricky to avoid white discoloration when chocolate sets. So a little bit of oil helped!

  1. Those look incredible! I definitely need to try these! 

  2. These look like something my husband would LOVE! Quick question, do paper liners come off easily? 

    • Hi, Olya! Yes, paper liners came right off. I was worried that they’ll stick too, but it didn’t. Hope you make these for your husband. Let me know if you do.

  3. I am partial to my PB cups, but I think I will love these 🙂

  4. These photos are incredible! Love the addition of coconut oil- pinning 🙂
