  1. Prepare the tray by placing paper muffin cases in a muffin tray. Next, add hot water to a small saucepan and place on a low heat.
  2. Add the cacao butter to a heat-proof glass bowl or jug that will fit into the saucepan. Continue to heat until all the cacao butter is melted.
  3. Once melted, remove the cacao butter from the heat. Add all the other ingredients for the white chocolate layer to the melted cacao butter and mix using an electric mixer at high speed for a few minutes.
  4. Add the mixture to the muffin cases. Only fill about one quarter full.
  5. Freeze for at least two hours until well set.
  6. Next, spoon a thin layer on almond butter onto each white chocolate cup. Spread out as evenly as possible. Freeze for two hours.
  7. Remove and repeat the steps 1-5 again to make another white chocolate layer. Freeze again for two hours. Then, enjoy! Decorate with some broken pecan pieces if desired.
