A Sun Butter Cup and Hot Cocoa Party

Welcome back my foodie friends!! Today is ANOTHER rainy day in LA which is strange because, well, it’s LA. As I was born and raised here, the dreariness is getting to me (go easy on me all you Washington rain masters). The best coping mechanism for the weather blues is a hot cup of frothy chocolatey something, right? Now I know this is the second frothy drink recipe I will be sharing with you in under a month, but bear with me because it is WORTH it. It incorporates my most recent obsession—sun butter. Yeah das right baby. Smooth, creamy, nutty sun butter that combines with chocolate in the most heavenly manner. And a bonus, its cheaper than most nut butters because—seedssss. So, join me with a cup of this frothy goodness next to a window freckled with water droplets. And because I love you, I’ve provided a bonus recipe for a chocolate sun butter cup to go with your cocoa (or not because its pretty rich and chocolate on chocolate is a lot but also I had both in one sitting so I support it).

Here we go!! 

look at that foammmmm

Sun butter Cup Cocoa


  • 1 Tbsp sun butter
  • 1 Cup hot water
  • 1 Tbsp cacao 
  • 1 heaping Tbsp coconut sugar (or any sweetener of your choice)

…plop it all in a blender and blend until frothy!! 

Optional add-ins: cinnamon, sea salt, vanilla extract, coconut butter, whatevaaa you want 

Yep, thats it…SUPER simple! 

Now for the sun butter cups!


  • 1 Tbsp melted coconut butter
  • 1 Tbsp cacao
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar 
  • 1 Tbsp sun butter 

Mix up the coconut butter, cacao, and coconut sugar. Pour half the mixture into a cupcake mold, add the sun butter in the middle, and finish it off with the rest of the cacao mixture. Sprinkle some sea salt on top if you fancy that kinda thing! Oh, and toss that baby in the freezer! She’ll be good to go in a minute or less!
