Pleasure Is Just A Salted Caramel Sip Away (Win!)

August 17, 2022

With another sweet summer weekend ahead, we’re pleased to share with you a delicious recipe from Karen Danudjaja, founder of Blume. The Vancouver-based superfood latte brand’s newly launched Salted Caramel blend focuses on the libido, balancing hormones and getting you in the mood to enjoy the pleasures of life. The mixture of salty and sweet play nice, while the real magic comes from schisandra and maca—ingredients that support your mood, energy levels and increase sexual desire. Pleasure is just a sip away! —Vita Daily

Salted Caramel Chocolate Cups Recipe


1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups pecan halves
1/2 cup pretzels
8 whole medjool dates, pitted
2/3 cup coconut oil, melted
a pinch of coarse sea salt

Caramel Filling:

1 cup thick caramel—could be homemade caramel or store-bought caramel pieces melted into a sauce
2 cups chocolate chips, melted
2 tsp of Salted Caramel Blend


Additional Salted Caramel Blend
Additional Coarse Sea Salt


Crust: Pulse the rolled oats, pecans, and pretzels in a food processor until broken down into small pieces. Add the Salted Caramel blend, dates, coconut oil, and sea salt to the food processor and pulse until a soft dough forms. Refrigerate for about 15-20 minutes to help the mixture become easier to work with.

Caramel Filling: While the dough crust cools, get your caramel filling ready and melt your chocolate. Melt your chocolate using a microwave or a double broiler method on a stovetop until you have a smooth consistency.

Assembly: When the crust mixture is firm enough, press into a muffin tin, leaving a well in the center of each cup. Add a tablespoon or two of caramel into each cup and top with chocolate. Sprinkle with additional Blume blend. Refrigerate or freeze until hardened. Remove from muffin tins and serve (give them a little time if they’ve been frozen.
