These dulce de leche chocolate cups are the perfect treat to enjoy with the warmer weather!

Jump to Recipe

As we get further into summer, the temperatures keep rising, especially down here in Southern California. Let’s face it, no one is trying to have their whole kitchen heat up for the sake of baking treats (as much as we all love our baked goodies). The warm weather warrants for all the no-bake treats. These dulce de leche chocolate cups are the perfect way to kickstart no bake season!

Not only are these chocolatey treats filled with a layer of dulce de leche but they also include a layer of mini marshmallows which is then covered by melted chocolate. Oh and don’t forget to finish with a sprinkle of flaky sea salt! This creates the perfect balance between sweet and savory. I would compare it to salted caramel chocolate with marshmallows.

This recipe was inspired by my favorite See’s Candies chocolate, Scotchmallows!

It’s hard to believe that these no bake treats only require 4 ingredients! Well, 5 if you include the flaky salt.

Ingredients needed

  1. Chocolate for melting
  2. Coconut oil
  3. Dulce de Leche
  4. Mini marshmallows

Tips

For the dulce de leche, I recommend purchasing the one in an 11.5 oz squeeze bottle. This makes it much easier (and less messy) when pouring into your silicone candy molds. Speaking of candy molds, here is a link to purchase the same one that I used: Silicone candy mold 2-pack

If you don’t have a silicone mold on hand or rather not buy one, you can always use a cupcake or muffin pan. Just be sure to add the cupcake liners to them.
