  • Double boiler
  • Muffin tin
  • Muffin liners or silicone liners
  • Spatula
  • Tablespoon



  • Line a muffin tin with 12 paper muffin liners. If you don't have a muffin tin, you can use 12 silicone muffin liners (even in different shapes like hearts).
  • Melt the chocolate chips with coconut oil over a double boiler. Stir to mix well until thoroughly melted. This should take about 5-10 minutes.
