  • Jelly filling:
  • Strawberries Strawberries 75g 1/2 cup
  • Chia Seeds Chia Seeds 3 tbsp 3 tbsp
  • Maple Syrup Maple Syrup 3 tbsp 3 tbsp
  • Beetroot Powder Beetroot Powder 1 tbsp 1 tbsp
  • Lime Juice Lime Juice 2 tbsp 2 tbsp
  • Fudge:
  • Cacao Butter Cacao Butter 230g 1 cup
  • Peanut Butter Peanut Butter 250g 1 cup
  • Brown Rice Syrup Brown Rice Syrup 2 tbsp 2 tbsp
  • Sea Salt Sea Salt 1/4 tsp 1/4 tsp


  1. 1.*Timing tip: prepare this recipe in advance as the cupcakes will need to chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
  2. 2.Firstly prepare the jelly filling by blending the strawberries, maple syrup, beetroot powder and lime into a juice.
  3. 3.Place the juice in a jar, add the chia seeds and stir well. Let the mixture sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (ideally an hour or so).
  4. 4.Remove the mixture from the fridge and place back in your blender on high speed until completely smooth (about 5 minutes or so). The chia seeds should not be visible and should be completely incorporated to forming a thick, shiny jelly.
  5. 5.Set the jelly aside in the fridge.
  6. 6.For the fudge you can either make one big block of fudge, or use individual bun cases (silicone cases work best).
  7. 7.Begin preparing the fudge by sitting a large bowl with the cacao butter in it on top of a saucepan with simmering water. You should never apply direct heat to the bowl.
  8. 8.Once melted remove from the heat and add the remaining ingredients.
  9. 9.Pour half of the mixture into the bun cases. Place the remaining fudge back over the simmering water to prevent it from hardening.
  10. 10.Put the bun cases in the freezer for 5 minutes to set the bottom layer.
  11. 11.Remove from the freezer and add a tbsp of the strawberry jelly on top of each bun case.
  12. 12.Evenly distribute the remaining fudge on top of each bun case.
  13. 13.Set in the freezer for 2 hours.
  14. 14.These fudge cups can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for longer.
