Place a stainless steel bowl over a pot of simmering water. Add the coconut oil in the bowl and let it melt.
Add the cacao powder and agave to the coconut oil. Mix it well with a whisk .
Divide the chocolate mixture into two separate bowls. Use all the content from only one of the bowls to make the base of the chocolate cups.

Once toasted, roughly chop almond slices using a knife.
